Greening the Places You Love
Where we learn, live, labor, worship and volunteer matters. Many people think of their homes or workplaces when they want to go green. This section of our website is dedicated to the other places we love and in which we spend time.
You're someone who cares about sustainability or is a green building professional. But what other hats do you wear? Are you active in your church? Are you on the Board of the local food bank? Do you volunteer with your local PTA?
We all have lives outside of green building and sustainability, but that doesn't mean we have to take off our sustainability or LEED professional badge when we're wearing another hat. Our expertise is valuable and can help advance sustainability within social service, cultural, faith, educational and many other community-based organizations. They are so often aligned with our vision of efficient, healthier places to live, work, learn and play -- they just need a bit of help to get started!
