Money is important, says Marilyn Gates, an anthropology professor at Simon Fraser University If green living cost less, more people would do it, she says.

"I think it reduces to economics by and large.People would do more if it wasn't a real sacrifice to them either economically or in terms of a busy day," says Gates."We'd all take public transit better if it wasn't going to waste a couple of hours instead of 20 minutes of our day."
Gates says society has come a long way in the past 20 years, but she worries it isn't enough.
