Eating green means more than just veggies

GREEN WEEK 2010The idea of going green has been a growing trend in the nation for years but the larger concept, sustainable living, actually focuses on more than just recycling or changing to more efficient lightbulbs.

The City of Oxford and University of Mississippi, in hosting Green Week beginning today through Friday, hope to introduce the community to small steps to begin leading a sustainable life.
