Of course we all care about the environment. But with so many demands at both work and home, many of us feel it takes too much time and money to help protect the planet. To celebrate Earth Day, we found three families who are committed to fighting global warming, reducing their carbon footprint, and living in harmony with nature. With parents and children working together, they're conserving energy, cutting costs and, best of all, growing closer.
