Another recent commentor linked us over
to the Urban Green Project
, a blog "intended to document our experience in creating a 'green' home in the city of Chicago.
We hope to share our experience good and bad, in creating an place to live ecologically, happily, with minimal impact upon our world."
From what we saw, this could be a great firsthand account / resource for those thinking about ways to go green, and how to avoid some of the pitfalls along the way.
In their "About the Project" section, we learn that Lisa and Brian live in a building that's over 100 years old, and they confess to not being the "greenest" people on earth. We loved what they had to say:We use disposable diapers, drive a car, eat meat, and occasionally tune into Desperate Housewives. Our gravitation toward 'green' has come as a result of our interest in living logically, preserving the future for our children, and feeling proud about doing what we can to live conscientiously.
Working with architect John Joyce to greenify their home and life, Lisa and Brian chronicle their progress here with Green Grumbles, and we're looking forward to seeing it unfold.
