Check out my latest post on The Green Phone Booth: Are You an Effective Green Missionary? Take the Quiz and Find Out!

Taking a hint from girlie magazines, I've prepared a little quiz to help you figure out what kind of green missionary you are. Good luck!

1. After reading Fast Food Nation, you've decided to stop eating at fast food restaurants. The next time you see your co-worker eating a Big Mac, you:

a) tell her, "That is so disgusting! How can you eat that!"

c) pat yourself on the back for making smart choices about your health and the health of the planet.
