—My army coat, which I wear because it’s cold out.
—My garden, in the summer.
—Most of my T-shirts
—My Emerald Rose CDs.

While I have stretched the definition of “can’t do without,” I do so only because green is my favorite color. Mmm, green!

Green is vital to life on this planet, whereas red is vital only to beings with circulatory systems like ours. I can’t do without chlorophyll.

Green and yellow Life Savers were my two favorites.

- The giraffe I received for my 22nd birthday. (That’s what happens when you write a song about giraffes, I guess.)
– My modified-ish jacket that suits me for all seasons (which some people compliment, and others silently mock. Or verbally.).
– Several of my shirts.
– Ginger ale cans (the ginger ale would be impossible to transport!).
– Plants. (I like breathing.)
– Irish breakfast tea, which comes in a green bag.
– The post-it note reminding me that my guitar jury is at 9:30 on Friday.
– My little green ESV bible. (The price on that site is ridiculous, by the way.)
– My eyeballs.

Strictly speaking, I could do without any or all of these things (to varying degrees). I just happen to like them. And green. I like green.

Well, I would say money but it’s not really very green anymore, is it? So I guess I’ll say our fluther jelly friend, since he personifies fluther.
I guess actually he jellifies fluther.

I love love love my grass green kitchen-aid mixer!

I also love everything green outside. Anything I buy, I try to buy I’m green—it is my favorite color!

I love my dark green shirts and sweaters. I could definitely do without my World Views class binder, which is green. After my exam tomorrow, it’s gonna burn :Z

My garden
My trees

Mint chocolate chip ice cream. (Even though we all know the white mint ice cream is better..)
Trees to make air for me to breathe
My favorite blanket
Weed (actually I could live without it, but I do like it..)

augustlan's avatar

My kitchen with its green walls.
All that lovely spring green…ahhhh, I can’t wait for spring!
My peridot jewelry (@Darwin: August birthday?)
The color itself…my favorite.

Darwin's avatar

@augustian – my birth stone is ruby but I like peridot better. :-)

is it bad that, thats the only green thing that came to mind? :P

Allie's avatar

I would like to add nyquil to my list of green things I can’t live without.
Thank you.

My eyes are green. I would hate to live without them .

Jack79's avatar

actually I hate green, so I’m generally ok. I never eat anything that is green except the odd cucumber (but I could do without that), I prefer red or yellow peppers and apples to green, and I have a couple of green shirts I like, but could live without them. The only useful green thing in my life right now is my car, which is very dark green, almost black.
