  • green awareness 2008: Green Awareness 2008 - 03/13/08 12:49 PM
    OK, guess I waited long enough to get into this. What sparked me is a email I did get today from MortgageIT and the new green program they have developed to help.  Now I guess we know that everyone is jumping on board (even us mortgage companies to help were we ... (0 comments)
  • green awareness 2008: "Go Blue" While Being Green - 03/13/08 11:44 AM
    Ann Arbor, Michigan has a saying and it is repeated all year long, "Go Blue". While I still think its great to be blue it's also really really great to be GREEN as well in Ann Arbor.
    We have The EnviroLink Network which is in Washtenaw County as well as Ann Arbor and links ... (2 comments)
  • green awareness 2008: Green By Accident - 03/13/08 10:42 AM
       I like the color green.  It's the color of the trees when they're in full bloom, our lawn when there's no water shortage, the name of the place I try to hit my golf ball in one or two shots every time and, last but not least - it's the ... (6 comments)
  • green awareness 2008: We were green when green wasn't cool. - 03/13/08 09:37 AM
    It seems that, today, green is all the rage.  It's hot, hot, HOT!  Suddenly, in every magazine, newspaper, online forum, "green" is on everyone's lips (or fingertips).  It's an overnight sensation!  However, like most overnight sensations, that's not the whole story.  Like the movie star who worked as a carpenter to ...

  • green awareness 2008: Better Homes, Better Planet.-Going Green in Ontario, Canada - 03/13/08 09:31 AM
    After reading janeAnne's post yesterday about the 'Green is red hot' contest, I thought to myself how fitting her words for a title depicting a contest about what is happening in the world today. Not specifically THE world, but more specifically the developed world.  Then on further thought, I realized those ... (2 comments)
  • green awareness 2008: Philadelphia loves Green. How we can keep it Green. - 03/13/08 07:00 AM
    Philadelphia is the home of the EAGLES. Green is our favorite color. ( atleast for most of us ) I hope even those who are not EAGLES' fans like the color of money.
    Go Green is the new mantra. We can help the environment as well as save some green by making ... (4 comments)

  • green awareness 2008: The Mean Green Machine - 03/12/08 09:06 PM
    For many years I thought being in the green was way more important than being green. I also was under the misconception that you couldn't do both. It seemed for too many years that the two views were mutually exclusive. A few years later and I am began to understand that being green ... (1 comments)

  • green awareness 2008: "Going Green" without Spending a lot of "Green" - 03/12/08 05:24 PM
    It seems like every time we hear "going green" it seems to entail spending a lot of "green" to get there. Many of these new and innovative ideas are great, but do you have thousands of dollars stuffed under your mattress to pay for them?  So you don't have the "green" to "go green?"  
    Then this is ... (9 comments)

    Green Building is growing around the Nation like Wildfire!  Houston is by no means an exception to this growth.  Green seems to be the thing to talk about around here, and the term used by someone last week was Cocktail Conversation.  No doubt that folks are hopping on the bandwagon and advertising ...
