According to the internet, there's 3 reasons your brake fluid could be green:

1) It was green when it went in
2) Copper somewhere in the system has contaminated it/corroded and given it a green color
3) Algae is growing in your brake system, turning it green.

If you don't believe the Algae thing, check this out!

In any case, the solution is a complete flush of the system.

I found this also -
green brake fluid...

In post #5 of the thread, there is a link saying it could be "Hydraulic Sytem Mineral Oil."

I personally don't know - just letting you know what I found.

Well at least I'm not the only one. I'm having brake issues and a rear caliper locked up. When replacing, I found that I too have the green brake fluid disease. Even with a new caliper, my brake pedal still goes soft about once a week. Hopefully a complete flush will fix it.

Keep flushing it till the pedal is firm. Did mine a bit ago, came out green-ish. Figured it was just old fluid.

This is why I change/flush my brake fluid every couple years. Brake fluid attracts moisture so changing it "regularly" it helps to prevent this and hopefully sticking calipers as well. 2 qts of fluid and a little time is all it takes.

Mine was green as well. I pushed almost 4 quarts through the system to get rid of it all. Also activate the ABS, and re bleed each one one or two times again.
