Being environmentally conscious has become more popular as people realize it the positive impact it can have on your health (not to mention your wallet—and it can be very tasty, too).
We want to make it easier for Melrose residents to go green. So for this week's Patch Picks column, we're asking you: What are five ways to be green locally?
Is there a nearby resource people should be aware of? An initiative they can take part in? However you 'go green,' want to hear about it.
Leave your suggestions and tips in the comments section below, and we'll compile them into this Thursday's Patch Picks column.
