    Post 'green color' or 'green-colored' plus noun?

    Dear teachers,

    -The title of today's article is 'making fonts greener - saving the planet one font at a time'. We're not talking about green color fonts, we're looking for a way to save the planet, perhaps by switching to green fonts.

    Would you please tell me which one is correct? 'Green color fonts' or 'green-colored fonts'?

    Thank you!

    'Green fonts' or 'green-colored fonts' is correct.
    I would not write 'green color fonts' (or even 'green colour fonts' for that matter).
