I have noticed over the last several years that more and more green companies are doing business where I live. Only 10 or 20 years ago, no one in this area seemed to care one way or another whether their trash was recycled or deposited in a landfill. No one was willing to give up the convenience of gasoline powered cars for the more environmentally-friendly battery powered or hybrid vehicles.
I guess this simply goes to show how much the world is changing and how people have the power to influence the way companies do business. As consumers become more aware of the need to protect the environment, we should the number of green jobs increase in large numbers.
