Last year I wrote an open letter to our future president and first lady.
“In your acceptance speech you called for a new spirit of patriotism and responsibility, where, as you so eloquently put it, ‘each of us resolves to pitch in and work harder and look after not only ourselves but each other.’ Like most Americans, I took those words to heart. So, as you enter the White House I’m stepping forward to look after you and your family the best way I know how: by offering to help you to truly green the White House.”
I was amazed with the response from readers of the Huffington Post. Their voices reminded me of the strength we have when we work together. With their support, we launched a new home for the best ideas for greening The White House.
GreenTheWhiteHouse.com is an interactive site enabling users to upload suggested “green” features into virtual rooms in The White House. The goal is to inspire America to lead the charge in greening their own homes and help teach the rest of the world, including The First Family, how to green theirs.
