Ok, so I take my own bags to the grocery, a stainless cup to the coffee shop, and recycle everything that I can. When it was time to get a new PFD I figured I better consider the earth, too, right?! So I got the “green” Norge thinking that it might not be a comfortable as my old vest but I was doing the right thing. Well, let me tell you that I had completely underestimated this jacket! It’s really comfortable, easy to put on, and simple to adjust. Most of the time I don’t even notice that I’m wearing it! So I’ve done good for me AND mother earth!
