Greening the White House
Greening the White House Imagine our next President announcing that on January 20, 2009 that he and the new First Lady will immediately begin remodeling by Greening the White House instead of just repainting and ordering new rugs to be made. They would announce a new initiative that will provide an example for other homes across the nation. Greening the White House could include covering the south lawn with solar panels, planting and serving organically grown food from their own garden, improving energy efficiency and indoor air quality, using on-toxic household products -- setting the example as we suffer from record high energy prices and global climate change. Greening the White House would encourage businesses across the country to create jobs, good green jobs, as they retrofitting homes and build green, a huge boost to our struggling economy. The White House is s symbol of our national home and when it is energy-efficient, non-toxic and our leaders are eating healthy, locally grown food while they tackle the nation's urgent needs, maybe they will not only consider the environment when they make decisions but also that they will encourage others to take action in their own homes and in their backyards. Sign the pledge to get the next President to start his term by Greening the White House and pass this on to get your friends to sign, too!
