Posted: Updated:
(WJBK) -

Chances are, living green plays a role in your everyday life, possibly in ways you don't even realize. Maybe you recycle, shop at a new, green business, or have a green job.

Maybe you're worried about the food we eat, the air we breathe or our water supply. Or, like some metro Detroiters, maybe you've gotten closer to nature.

If you want to do more but don't know where to start, play the video in the player to watch Robin Schwartz and the FOXe Special: Living Green.

She shows you how some of your neighbors are helping our planet and how you can get involved!

Segment 1: We visit a plant in Hillsdale where recycled plastics and steel are being brought back to life in a colorful way! You'll also see some of the creative ways schools, businesses and individuals are recycling.
