Mike Richter Goes Green

From the Sierra Club:

What lifestyle changes have you made because of global warming?

I have done a series of practical (and fairly boring) things that have actually improved the quality of my life, rather than diminish it, while shrinking my carbon footprint:  When my 1993 car finally gave in, I went to the highest gas milage car I could find—a Prius.  I’m still looking to get an entirely electric vehicle, but no luck yet.  I drive less and take public transportation (metronorth RR) everyday on my commute.  When the light gets a bit better I will try to ride my bike to the train.  I have opted to receive all my electricity from renewable sources at my house and have made it a priority to buy locally grown produce.  To that end, my family has been getting into gardening (really local).

Click here for on Mike Richter’s outlook on our environment. Glad to see his being a “stand-up” guy in another area besides hockey.
