1 point  for a Sometimes answer

0 points for a Never answer

Your "greenness score" IS:

*Between 35-40 points - you are a Green champion, an example to others.  THANK YOU for your good work, keep it up, and try now to bring others on board too!

*Between 20-34 points - you are well on your way to exemplary environmental awareness.  A few tweeks and you too are a Green champion.

*Between 12-19 points - a good start and every effort definitely helps.  Perhaps you can see from this quiz a few more areas where you can be helping even more...

*Less than 12 points - what Green movement? A teacher in class would scold you for this score :(

All in good fun of course but the fact of the matter is that everyone must realize this crucial need for altering our ways of living toward a more greener, earth-friendly lifestyle.  Let's do it!
