I wanted to give a heads-up to any Casa readers in Los Angeles about a series of events coming up in the next three weekends. These events, which will showcase the newest in green building, will take place at project7ten in Venice.
A joint project between builder Tom Schey and environmentalist Kelly Meyer, the recently completed LEED Platinum-certified project7ten is one of the most environmentally friendly homes in California. It will open its doors for three weekends in October to educate and raise awareness about simple everyday choices and green products that can create a healthier environment.
These open houses cost $20, and sales from the tickets will benefit Healthy Child Healthy World, the nation’s leading non-profit in the area of children’s environmental health. Each weekend, a random drawing will award winners thousands of dollars in eco-friendly prizes, including Shaklee Get Clean Starter Kits ($150 value), a Naturpedic Organic Baby Mattress ($300 value), Magic Bullett sets ($60 value), or Going Green Consultations ($500 value).
If any LA Casa readers are planning on going, please let me know (and take some pictures while you're there)!
