Being green, sustainable, and responsible is something for which to aim. Producing and buying in this manner is not black or white, but many shades in between. Familiarize yourself with terms like Corporate Social Responsibility, triple bottom line, Life Cycle Assessment, cradle to cradle, recycle and upcycle, adaptive reuse, waste management, and fair-trade.
