We started Green Irene because saving energy, waterand money all make sense. Having a healthier homewith ewer toxic chemicals and better indoor air qualityis a no-brainer. Green Irene is on a mission to “GreenOur World, One Home and Oce at a Time.” GreenIrene trains and supports local Eco-Consultants to assistin implementing proven green home and businesssolutions. Since 2007, Green Irene has grown into thelargest green consulting rm in the United States withover 650 certied Eco-Consultants in 50 states.
We are not preachy green people, andwe believe it is hypocritical to encouragepeople to make liestyle changes wewouldn't make ourselves. We eelstrongly that each o us can make adierence with simple changes in liestyleand habits. When you start to see results,like nancial savings rom lower utilitybills, it helps reinorce bigger and morepermanent liestyle changes.
