OK, so you recycle, and yes, you buy organic when you can. You might even own a Prius. But how do you really measure up? Now there’s a way to find out. I discovered an online service that takes you through a series of eco questions and when you’re done, you know exactly where you stand. Even better, it gives you specific ideas and concrete advise on how to get even more ecologically sound and savvy in your life. And when you do, you get rewards. The creator of this site, Susan Hunt Stevens, is the Founder and CEO of Practically Green, an online service that motivates people to make healthy green changes at home, at work and in their community. I’m “Impressively Green” which is level 8 (there are two more levels to go). What are you?
