My Vision for Sustainable Buildings

I was recently blessed to be profiled by PowerHouse Growers, who believe ‘it is not about what’s trending – it’s about what’s sustainable. Small change that leads to big impact – resulting in healthier people.’ The ladies behind PowerHouse are highly passionate, motivated advocates of true sustainability and are changing the world through their multiple online platforms, including PowerHouse Growers Kids and PowerHouse Hydroponics.

I felt very fortunate to be able to discuss a host of topics close to my heart, in their profile {In her field: Laura Paul a green building expert who knows no limits}, including: how I first got involved in sustainable construction, how compassion and action are the keys to a solution, and why we should all care about the sustainability of the buildings we live and work in.

When we expand our circle of compassion to encompass natural systems, exploring innovative solutions will be prioritized.

We instinctively protect the things we love.

As many of you may know from my twitter, I love asking questions. It was my chance to be on the receiving end of questions during their second feature {5 questions with sustainability advocate, Laura Paul}. I discussed overcoming obstacles, provided advice for those starting out, explained the source of my inspiration, and  my vision for green buildings.

I am thankful for the opportunity to express my passions and ideas on such a powerful platform. If the content has a positive impact on some those reading it, it will have been more than worth it.

  3. Glad you decided to follow my blog. Most of the agriculture in Ethiopia is done the old way, but unfortunately deforestation there is extreme and the average number of children six. You might like previous blog posts (before the Ethiopia series) about Apocalyptic Planet.
