Almost-Green

There are many things that are either almost-green or almost "green." In an age when everything must be some kind of green in order to sell (for more green), it behooves us to be aware of how things can be only almost-green.


Types/Categories:

1. Greenish: Things close to green in color. (Green tea. Light green paint. Blue-green algae. Yellowish-green growths on your cheese.)

2. Almost-Organic: Regular food, and just mostly-healthy food. (Coffee with cream and sugar. A bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich.)

3. Almost-Clean: Pollutes very little. (Any cleaning solvent so mild that you can buy it at a supermarket.)

4. Almost-Wimpy: Doesn't use as much energy as the gas-guzzling alternative. (Push lawnmower, motor scooter, jet-ski.)
