What does it mean to be green? That's what we asked fellow teens from around the country. Their responses surprised us.

From Anchorage, Alaska to Portland, Maine, teens see green as more than remembering to recycle. Green, they told us, is not about the color of their skin, or how much they donate to Greenpeace. It's about listening to immigrants' experiences, to environmental leaders and to that voice inside. And it's about believing that one person can make a difference, and then spreading the word.

  • Interviews at the StoryCorps Mobile Booth begin with a question, but the exciting part is the answer. Because, whether it’s from someone we know and love, or from someone we’ve just met, the answer tells us something we didn’t know.

    NHPR brought the Mobile Booth to Concord in summer 2007 and to Berlin in summer 2009.
