The biggest progress of Green Building is that more people recognize the value of green building; and the biggest challenge is it's not enough people yet.

She is also President of Mary Love Consulting Firm.  With a long list of qualifications, Mary has been inspiring, training and teaching for over thirty years, and is affectionately called, the “Grandmother of Green.”  She presents facts and detailed information with a sense of humor and great passion.  Mary’s love for nature and humanity has guided her to be one of the top presenters in the Green Building Industry.  Mary believes that individual actions create massive change when done with purpose and intend.  Her motto is, “A little bit of something is a whole lot better than nothing.”  Mary sees the world as one big Green Project and her passion is helping everyone understand how we are all connected. Here are the talking points:

  • What was it like 30 years ago to be talking about “green homes”?
  • I imagine things are quite different now compared to back then.  In your observation, what is the biggest progress in the business of green homes and what is still the biggest challenge in your  work?
  • What do you think is the most effective term to use to describe the homes you and I are promoting?  “Green,” “eco,” “healthy,” and/or “high performance.”?
  • What is your advice for me to reach more of the right people who would be more receptive of the idea of “green,” “healthy,” or “high performance” homes?
