Green Check Collective - a Sponsor for GreenFEST 2011!

Real Estate Agent with Dudum Real Estate Group -

WHO are our sponsors? 

We are proud to have Green Check Collective as part of GreenFEST 2011.  Read about Nelda and her journey to sustainability

What got me started...
The architectural firm that I worked for was remodeling an old building to move into. They were going through the LEED process. We had green building workshops at noon. I got interested but did not find the time to study further.

After a down turn in the housing market and being laid off, I took classes to become green certified. I got my opportunity to study.

Why was certification important?
As an architect it puts me on the cutting edge of being sustainable. It feels good doing something to be a good steward the earth. As a green certified business it shows that I am walking the talk. As I teach green building techniques to students it shows that I care and that it is not that hard to do something positive for the environment.

Biggest benefit?
Feeling good about doing something positive. Surprise benefit is realizing how many people do not know about being sustainable and being able to educate them on easy steps to be help.

Getting the message out.
Enthusiastic education is the key. For me, many planning and building departments are now requiring the "Green Point Rater-checklist" on plans so I am getting more calls to help advise on the list.

Customer quote: My students have gone on to get BPI - Building Performance Institute certifications to help them retrofit homes with "Upgrade California" They have expressed gratitude for getting them started on the "Green" road. We have started the "Green Check Collective" to help home owners get the $8,900.00 worth of rebates possible to them for upgrading their homes. We are excited.
