Greening with Gratitude was a project I began in May 2011 with the hope of creating change by starting with myself. In the year of striving to find practical solutions and small steps I have learned a lot and hope to share some of this with you.
Be sure to see the description of the project below as well as provide feedback here.
Thanks for stopping by,
How To Green With Gratitude
Below is a short summary of the project of greening with gratitude. Essentially, it is a way of sharing the savings that can be derived from green choices. I see massive potential in transitioning to a low-carbon economy, and this can be accelerated if those who already experience the lower operating costs of renewable energy help others overcome the higher initial costs.
It also includes my savings and expenditures for the past year as well as my hopes for a new green bank, similar to both a food bank program and Habitat for Humanity as a way to help others and act collectively.
