The term "green" gets its roots from the political term "Green Politics" which comes from the political organization "Green Party", whose principals, among other things, includes environmentalism. "Greens", as they are called, believe essentially that humans are disrupting the environment. 
Here is their official stated value: Human societies must operate with the understanding that we are part of nature, not separate from nature. We must maintain an ecological balance and live within the ecological and resource limits of our communities and our planet. We support a sustainable society which utilizes resources in such a way that future generations will benefit and not suffer from the practices of our generation. To this end we must practice agriculture which replenishes the soil; move to an energy efficient economy; and live in ways that respect the integrity of natural systems. MORE
Here we will attempt to inform and educate what the "green" or "environmentally friendly" movement is about and how it affects individuals and businesses. We will also provide tips and information to help consumers and businesses utilize various "green" initiatives that will help the environment. We will try to explain it in easy to understand terms that will assist you in your "live green" everyday life.

Our goal is two-fold:
1) to help consumers and businesses gain knowledge about how to consume less and recycle more.

2) to promote "green" related events, educational material, and educate consumers on environmental friendly products and services here in Howard County, Maryland.

Ellicott City is an unincorporated community and census-designated place in Howard County, Maryland, United States. The population was 56,397 at the 2000 census. It is the county seat of Howard County. Founded in 1772, the town features the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Station Museum, built in 1830, a downtown historic district ,which is a very popular destination among antiques shoppers, with restaurants, eclectic boutique shops, coffee shops, a tea room and many historic sites. As of the 2000 Census, Ellicott City surpassed Towson, Maryland, as the largest unincorporated county seat in the country.

In July 2005, Ellicott City was ranked the 20th Best Place to Live in the United States by CNN/Money and Money magazine.

In July 2006, Ellicott City/Columbia was ranked 4th by CNN/Money and Money magazine on its list of the 100 Best Places to Live in the United States.

Ellicott City is listed amongst America's most affluent communities and is located in Howard County, the third wealthiest county in the United States according the U.S. Census Bureau.

The downtown area is often called "Historic Ellicott City" or "Old Ellicott City", to distinguish it from the unincorporated area that extends north to the Baltimore County line, south to Columbia, and west to West Friendship.
Columbia is a census-designated place and planned community in Howard County, Maryland, United States. It is a suburb of Baltimore and, to a lesser degree, Washington, DC. It began with the idea that a city could enhance its residents' quality of life. Creator and developer James W. Rouse saw the new community in terms of human values, not just in terms of economics and engineering. Opened in 1967, Columbia was designed to not only eliminate the inconveniences of then-current subdivision design, but also eliminate racial, religious, and income segregation.

Today, Columbia has a population of about 94,600 (making it the largest unincorporated community in Maryland). By the early 2000s, the town had acquired many of the characteristics of other contemporary U.S. suburbs, such as increasingly large private homes on large parcels and "big-box" retail stores accessible mostly by automobile. Nevertheless, Rouse's ethos remains a strong influence upon the physical and political development of Columbia.
