When I was younger, the only thing that I really cared about was myself. That all changed though when I fell in love with my lab partner in a college chemistry course. We dated for a few months, and then we got married. I thought that my heart was filled to capacity until she got pregnant with twins. It was then that I started to care about the world around me too. I wanted to make sure that I was doing my part in leaving my kids a cleaner world, and that is why I changed energy providers before the girls were even born.
I guess turning green is the term for what happened to me. I looked at how wasteful I was with the resources I had available to me, and I wanted to change. I wanted to do it for a number of reasons, but the main one was because I wanted my children to be proud of their parents. When my wife told me that we could switch to an energy company that is green, I instantly became interested in learning more. I was able to find a website that had all of the information I needed to make the best choice for our family as far as our energy provider is concerned.
I compared not only the prices and various plans but also what the companies are doing to promote a greener world for all of us. The company that I ended up switching to is actually one of the first companies in our area to be involved in the green movement. I was able to read about their vision to provide to their customers the best and greenest energy source available, and I knew that was the company that was for us. That change was just the first of many important changes for our new family.
