On the Spot By Sean Carlson, Photos by Warren Westura MARCH 2010 VOL. 9 NO. 2 DAVID J. BLACK FOUNDER & CEO Is the Country on the Right Track with "Going Green?" Nancy Brown, Chatham Of course! Chatham is already going green. Gale Pappas, Chatham Yes. I use all green products at home. No pesticides! Ginger Pate, New Providence Yes—we just changed to energysaving lightbulbs, and they last longer. Noelle Nish, Morris Township I've found that a lot of companies are trying to go green, and it is doing well to raise awareness. CATHLEEN M. BLACK PRESIDENT & COO NAOMI B. KENAN EDITOR IN CHIEF MICHAEL J. REIDY ART DIRECTOR THERESA H. SARZYNSKI GRAPHIC DESIGNER SEAN E. CARLSON CALENDAR EDITOR KELLY DE LA ROCHA, BARRY FARBER, NICOLE CANFORA-LUPO, DEBORAH BEBB, JULIE JACOBS CONTRIBUTING WRITERS Bob Nish, Morris Township It's important that we go green, and there are so many small things people can do to help. BRENDAN CONWAY EDITORIAL INTERN PAULINE DUNBERG, CAROL FEDERICI, RUSS JACOBS, CHRISTINE LAYNG, MARIA PALADINO-FITZ, BETSY TAPP , LORRIE TOSCANO MARKETING CONSULTANTS CRISTIN E. KETTLE Mark Lloyd, Madison I think conservation efforts are good, but a lot of the talk about "carbon footprints" is bunk. Chris Mazzarisi, Gillette I think it is all important, especially given the price of gas. Mindy Fedele, Livingston Yes, absolutely. I would like the world to be in better shape for my children than it was for me. OFFICE MANAGER VANICE GAGE DONEGAN ONLINE BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT DANIEL EPSTEIN SENIOR PHOTOGRAPHER SHARON STERN, WARREN WESTURA CONTRIBUTING PHOTOGRAPHERS ERIK S. GALUPPO VIDEOGRAPHER (SUBURBANESSEX.COM) Jim LeChance, Millburn Yes and no. It is the right idea, but I don't know if we have enough time, money, or political will to get there. Mary Royer, Madison I'm dubious about global warming being caused by humans, but I think conservation is good.

Anthony Arminio, Chatham I would have to say so, being as the method we use now is a waste of energy. Richard Swift, Harding I don't think the total costs of going green are being calculated properly.
