What causes frequent diarrhea and green stools?

I have been having frequent diarrhea episodes (much like the pre-colonoscopy treatment). I just used the bathroom and my stool was curly and green. Pretty bright green. I sometimes get that when I eat a lot of salad, but I haven t had salad in several days.What is up?
