Green Initiative, Project by a Design Build Company Who Wants to Enlighten People on Global Warming
Many people saw An Inconvenient Truth, a movie made famous by former vice president Al Gore. But the real question is what have you done since you saw this movie or others like it?
By: Voitek Klimczyk
“The movie inspired me to do something about what I just saw. I wanted to immediately help draw more awareness to the incredible problem we as humans created for ourselves. So many ideas filled my mind about what I can do, but the most immediate action that I could take became very apparent.
I decided to create a new section on our website called the Green Initiative. In this section my goal is to fill it with articles and media content that pertains to educating people on what they can do to help this necessary cause, because we all need to do something.
The goal right now is to create content of interest to visitors of our website, so that they view some of these movies out here and perhaps get inspired themselves to take action. Our Green Initiative section only contains a few articles and some movie trailers for now, but the plan is to keep expanding it and filling it with guides on how they can help save money, go green and do their part to save our environment.
From a remodeling business perspective, we are trying to get people to purchase technologies like Geothermal Heating Systems and Solar Powered Hot Water Systems. Right now we are capable of building and remodeling homes with green technology, but we are not seeing the demand. I think the problem is that people are afraid of some of the initial costs to implement green technologies like Solar Power and most likely the majority of the problem is that people are just un-aware of their options.
As our website grows, we plan to educate people on all their building options and also provide them with energy saving & reducing tips. People come to us because they need a home addition or a new home, soon we’ll be able to help these people see the light and go green with their renovations or building plans. I think that there are many people out there that want to do the right thing, but maybe they just don’t have the time to figure out what those things are. I see this Green Initiative Project as a personal duty of mine since I partly own a remodeling company that builds a lot of large scale projects such as room additions and custom homes. With a little time and effort spent on our website; which is growing in popularity, our customers will be asking us for green advice and green technologies instead of us trying to push the technologies on them.
In the long run, we as a construction company want to be known for our commitment to quality building as well as our commitment to being a responsible business entity. We have won several awards from the Better Business Bureau that deal with having high ethical standards and providing quality consumer education regarding the residential construction industry. Now we are gearing our efforts to educate consumers on green options and green responsibilities, we all have to start somewhere. “
