Carter and Florence Hedeen practice living green every day.

The Park Rapids couple has the philosophy that people need to appreciate what they have and take care of the environment.


"We don't appreciate what we have often enough," Florence said. "We have clean air, fresh water, and we need to preserve that."

They go by the mantra "reduce, reuse, recycle," but emphasize reduce and reuse most of all. Those come before recycling, they say.
