. I’m Rebecca Brayton and welcome to watchmojo.com. Today we’re speaking with Farkas to get some do’s and don’ts on how to make your life more green. What would you say is the biggest mistake that most people make in terms of green living? What bothers me I guess is when people kind of just want to pay their way to green. You know they want to buy some solar panels, and buy a hybrid car throwing money at the green movement won’t necessarily work because I think it’s more of an overall mentality that you have to have.
There are a lot of products that claim to be natural that that are full of fragrances, parabens, preservatives and stuff. Unfortunately, I have to just do your research and read every single ingredient list. You know all this stuff like a Starbucks. Whatever, they had these healthy-looking salads and then you read ingredients like propylene glycol which i think is some derivative of antifreeze. It’s like what was a problem that you encountered that you didn’t foresee. You often have to choose between like an imported organic product or a local non-organic product. The rule that my nutritionist friend has is like first is local organic, second is local, and third it is organic.
