I would love us all to feel great both at home and at work. That they were both "green" environments where we could breathe freely and feel good. What's the point though in home without a clean planet to build it on? I think that these are worthwhile and honorable persuits which I am ready to take part in. What can I do today I do - tomorrow will do even more. Let everyone do what they can today to let us live in "green" houses and work in "green" workplaces, relax in the "green" country houses, on "green" lawns and in "green" cities. Green Building is real and now!
