Going green seems to be a new way of life that's sweeping the U.S., not to mention, the world.

Its a win-win, saving our environment and saving you a few bucks.

Almost everywhere you look, green is the theme.

From Hollywood, to the campaign trail.

The five letter word has taken on a whole new meaning, and thousands are going green.

In the Pioneer City, Marietta Mayor Michael Mullen says the Armory is getting an earth friendly face lift.

It will soon be solar voltaic and Geo-thermal.

Another initiative in Marietta is to make the city a more bicycle friendly community.

Across the river in Parkersburg, city officials are also finding new ways to be a friend to our planet.

Mayor Bob Newell says they are trying to do an educational thing, teaching people how to recycle.

Up the road in Belpre, city officials are tackling a whole new venture for the environment.

The city building will soon be solar paneled, and LED lights are already blinking green in Belpre.

So, whether it's recycling, new construction, or just building earth friendly awareness, local communities are launching conservation minded initiatives, and hoping folks will catch the green fever.
