How can we use our money in a “green” way? In his book Prosperity without Growth Tim Jackson puts it neatly. “Green” is anything linked to ecological transformation (such as sustainable agriculture, ecosystem protection, energy efficient buildings and grid, public transportation, ecological maintenance and enhancement) and also community-based ecological enterprises which have a low-carbon footprint (such as food, health, community education and arts, maintenance & repair, recreation).
