Today I started my first internship at Green Living Solutions (http://www.greenlivingsolutionsnj.com/), a sustainable business consulting group that helps homeowners assess ways to save money and energy in their homes. I’m already involved with two projects, and it’s been quite exciting!
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, “Your home uses energy every day, all day long. It uses energy to keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It uses energy to provide you with light when you need it. It uses energy to provide you with hot water. And, it uses energy to run all of your home appliances and electronics.”
I’ve already learned that in order to counteract the biggest problem our planet faces today, global warming, it’s all about taking the first step as an individual to save energy. This company helps people do just that. I am so lucky to have the opportunity to work with Eco Ed (http://www.askecoed.net/), who is a fantastic role model. He owns one of the most sustainable homes in New Jersey, and he really knows the tricks and ways to save energy. He is a true environmentalist. Can’t wait to move forward in this venture!
