Changing radio button color based on which one clicked

Is there anyway I can use CSS to switch the color of two radio buttons between green and red, depending on which one is checked or moused over.  

One radio button with have a label = Active and the other will have a label = Away.  When Active is checked then the button should be green and the Away should be red when checked.  

I see examples of setting the label to another color, but not setting the color of the inside of the button.

Thanks for help.
