While going green may be a new thing for some people these days, it's not a new concept for Sheryl Crow.  She's been green since she was a kid and continues the trend with her own family. 

Sheryl tells Parade.com that she's both green on the road while on tour and also at home.  " We recyle at my farm and we grown an organic garden.  We also have certain rules around the house about running water, the air conditioner and not leaving the lights on.  We are all about conservation.  I am also solar-powered now."  Sheryl credits her parents for nurturing her concern for the environment, saying she was raised by environmentalists who were careful about shutting lights off and not using the air conditioner uneccessarily.  Sheryl, who has two young sons,  says having kids really puts the importance of taking care of the environment in perspective.
