Okay -- I am in.  I have been wanting to do a green awareness post and what better month than March.  Last year's contest was aweseome.  I know this year, it is going to be even better!  I think I'll skip the green eggs though (lol)!  Thanks for the incentive janeAnne.

So happy you are going to write a post this year. Looks like it could be a very engaging(and-hopefully exciting and educational) challenge...love that GREEN!

Very cool JaneAnne, I learned something else today, I am happy to be a new subscriber to the ECO-All Stars group, thanx!!
Posted by Patrice Estess (PB APPRAISALS) over 10 years ago
Hi Green-O-Lina, As you know, Green isn't just an "in" thing.  Its an imporant shift in the way we think about our living environment for ourselves and for our clients.  All it takes is a little shift in our awareness and suddenly we become more conscious of what we consume, breath, and ... believe.  Thanks for being THE Green-O-Lina.
Posted by Cindy Brandon, CDPE, EcoBroker, GRI, CRS, ePro over 10 years ago
Cindy got it just right. Green has to be the new reality, not just the next thing. Houses have a huge impact on energy consumption and something as simple as living a few miles closer to where you work can have an equally large impact on your carbon footprint. It would be amazingly great if real estate agents could be leaders rather than foot-dragging followers in the shift to smarter energy use. Contests like this are a great way to build interest. Go Green!
Posted by Dave Roberts (Healdsburg Sotheby's International Realty) over 10 years ago

Hi janeAnne - I remember your last 'green' contest, and in reading those posts, I learned more than I thought I would about being/going green.  And I learned there are plenty of things each of us can do easily enough.  I'll look forward to reading this contest's posts, too.

I LOVE that picture you used - beautiful!  That is just so pretty - I would love to see a full-blown version of that one.

I have been an advocate of green living for almost a year now -  since seeing and understanding "The movie " Inconvenient Truth". 
I developed and trademarked "EcoStaging(TM)" as part of the CSP(TM) staging process back in July of 07 in an effort to raise awareness within the CSP(TM) community at least, of, how important "green" is and what role it plays in marketing property.

Certified Staging Professional(TM) CSP(TM) continuing educational program includes EcoStaging(TM) as one of their designations and as one of the electives.  I would be honored to be a judge for this contest and or to be one of the contestants.
Which ever you think is best:)
