In the region

Since I found a nice article today by Valerie Schremp Hahn at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch entitled “Rain Garden Pays Dividends“, I thought today would be a good day to focus on St. Louis.

So next we have “School’s Green Roof is Sound Investment” by Corinne Lestch.

Then there is “FFA Finds Fertile Ground at School in St. Louis” by Georgina Gustin.

With bike to work day last week (in which I jogged with my kids as they rode to school on their bikes), there was this gem entitled “Bike to Work Day in Nothing New for Rising Number Here” by Cynthia Billhartz Gregorian.

For all the good news though we still have this one unfortunate one entitled “Recycling Movement Falters in City” by Paul Hampel. All the stories here can be found at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Two steps forward, one step back.  Okay, in this case five steps forward, one step back.

Me and my son and tall buildings

When I saw this post, I immediately thought of my son and his love of tall buildings. So for him, check out “Empire State Building Goes Green: Major Energy Efficiency Improvement Retrofit Announced” by Matthew McDermott at Treehugger.

Building an e-world

I’ve recently read two articles on living in an e-world. The first comes from ENN.com abuout a recyclable hotel being built in Britian¬†entitled “UK builds recyclable hotel” and the second article is about a project in Swedem that will be warmed by peoples body heat. This article “People power to warm new building in Stockholm: project leader” can be found at Inhabitat.com.
