How can we live lightly and help improve the earth while saving money and resources at the same time? Climate change is all over the news and it seems like many are trying to “go green”. There are many steps we can take to help stop climate change while making our lives better.
Maybe it’s time to go green with some new tech. Like an eco-friendly speaker that happens to be portable.

Check out the items below to go green this spring:
