So what does it mean to live a sustainable life? The one thing I have determined is that there are no absolutes, but rather a sliding scale of sustainable choices. As the Director of Sustainability at SHP Leading Design, I have the opportunity to make good, sustainable choices in my professional life as well as my personal life. This blog is meant to be a means by which to capture those sustainable choices and even accomplishments so that others can (hopefully) learn from them as well. The plan is to talk about all aspects of sustainability from building design, to consumer products, to sustainable operations to greenwashing and pretty much everything in between. Look for posts on ongoing struggles with LEED documentation, news about new sustainable technologies, information on new high performance buildings and just about anything else that happens to pop into my head or happen in my day to day life as I try to be more sustainable in everything I do.
