Green Homeowners

After their house was finished, John and Diane resolved to try and make things easier for anyone else in the Keys looking to build a house as green as theirs. Together with several nonprofit and government organizations, the couple founded Florida Keys Green Living and Energy Education (GLEE), which conducts seminars promoting sustainable building and living. "So many pieces have to come together," says John. "Sure, there are education issues, but we also need a regulatory climate that makes green building more doable, not to mention well-trained craftsmen. After all, the public is clamoring for this stuff."
