I've never been one to wear those copper bracelet type things !

What are they supposed to do anyway ?...and do they actually do it ?

My real question is why do they turn skin green ?...and is this good or bad ?...is it a  lessening of the metal in the bracelet to the point where it will eventually wear out ?....does it not do harm to the skin ?

Copper and green usually means the creation of copper oxide.
