A new Harris Poll finds that Americans are still acting cautiously when it comes to weathering the sour economy.
And some of the money-saving steps they are taking qualify as green behaviors, though whether or not this has been intentional was not addressed in the poll of 2,576 adults surveyed online between January 18 and 25, 2010 by Harris Interactive.
The poll found, for instance, that:

- 22 percent said they had cut down on dry cleaning
- 14 percent said they had begun carpooling or using mass transit
