It’s Funny Being Green
Turning your life around to be eco aware has it challenges. When Doug Fine decided to embrace eco-awareness he hadn’t bargained on the intricacies of installing Japanese solar panels, fighting off coyotes to defend his herd of goats and begging the local Chinese restaurant to help supply “veggie oil” for his truck.
