In the spirit of Thanksgiving, the Green Builder Media team wants to express our heartfelt appreciation for you—our readers, advertisers, partners, and colleagues—the leaders of the green building sector.
At Green Builder Media, our dream is for each structure in North America—indeed throughout the world—to be self-sufficient and regenerative, replenishing its surrounding environment and nourishing its community.
It’s a herculean effort to transform an industry, and there is no way that we could accomplish our goals without your colossal support. We thank you for your continued involvement in the building of our collective dreams. With the proliferation of advanced green products, performance metrics (in 2011, 40% of all houses built in the United States had a HERS rating), and consumer awareness, we’re turning incremental change into exponential results.
I’m particularly grateful for the building professionals who are delivering high performance homes at price parity; the consumers who are looking beyond the price per square foot metric and making purchasing decisions based on long-term value, driven by their interest in sustainable living; the product manufacturers who are embracing innovation and developing affordable green products; and the regulators who are making sustainability a baseline.
I’d also like to extend boundless gratitude to my remarkable colleagues at Green Builder® Media. Your passion, commitment, creativity, and ingenuity have enabled our company to constantly raise the bar on sustainability and affect significant, positive change throughout North America.
Pushing a boulder uphill can certainly be a thankless job. So, whatever area of the green building sector you’re in, please know that your work is appreciated. Thank you for your vigorous dedication to finding solutions for intelligent living. I’m encouraged by your vision, excited by your enthusiasm, and awed by your ingenuity. Your work inspires my own.
And, as a self-professed shameless plug, let Green Builder Media give back to you this holiday season—enter to win a trip for 4 to celebrate Earth Day with Green Builder Media at our VISION House® in Innoventions exhibit at Epcot® in the Walt Disney World Resort®. It would be an honor to have you there with us to celebrate all of our efforts towards building a better world.
What are you thankful for this holiday season? Write to me at email@example.com or follow me on Twitter @SaraGBM.
