Have you ever been in a hurry to get somewhere and you’re stuck behind a car that drives at a snails pace?  You know, the car that seem to taunt you with their slower-than-molasses acceleration… incredibly infuriating, right?  I mean, get the hell off the road!  This is 2009… people have stuff to do, places...

Method + Skylab Sure to Delight

Method Homes is a prefab home manufacturer out of Seattle… in years past, they’ve partnered with Balance Associates to produce two lines of dwellings, the Cabin Series and the S-M-L Series.  Pictured below is their production Cabin near Mount Baker, Washington State, which can be rented for $250/night…. man, not much more than a decent...
Build Green = Save Green

Build Green = Save Green

Green building’s biggest misconception is that it is too expensive.  Many say “I wish I could go green, but dadgum, I just can’t afford to!”  Well folks, I’m not buying it… when it comes to crunching #’s, the converse is actually true.  Building green is one of the smartest financial decisions that can be made. ...
Let’s Get Platinum Thin!

Let’s Get Platinum Thin!

About six months ago I wrote about Onion Flats, an architecture/development operation out of Philly that produces epic urban infill projects.  A couple weeks back I was in the city of the Liberty Bell doing some eco-seminars for their home and garden show.  Through a lead from Greenable, Philly’s premier green product showroom, I was...
Let’s Talk Trash!

Let’s Talk Trash!

Aight… mixin’ in a little commentary here… and I’m skippin’ the small talk! …we’re pretty wasteful here in the good ol’ US of A.  We are throwing away twice as much as we did 50 years ago… our number is up to 4.5 pounds of waste a day/person.  This translates to 1,600 lbs of garbage...

Get Green With Organic Josh

So a couple months back I filmed a project out in Philly doing eco-friendly kitchen and bath makeovers for HGTV.  I hosted 20 short episodes covering everything from graywater recycling, bamboo tables, low VOC paints to floor refinishes and backsplash installations.  The clips are now available to view on Ecologue, HGTV’s sister site devoted to...

Sewer Free Works for Me

Sewer Free Works for Me

Flushing toilets with water may seem like something that always has been and always will be.  In reality, it’s one of the greatest misallocations of a valuable resource we’ve ever come up with.  Accessing freshwater is becoming a huge issue for not only third world countries, but for us here in the US of A…...
How Walkable is Your City?

How Walkable is Your City?

My friends, I’m gonna let you in on a little secret… walking is the new driving! Many are discovering the benefits of living in dense areas that are packed full of nearby amenities.  Staying in shape and not contributing any greenhouse gases (unless you’re walking away from a Taco Bell) are just two of the...
Graywater is Great Water

Graywater is Great Water

Go ahead and raise your hand if you drink the water from your toilet.  Anyone?… Anyone?…. Bueller?… Bueller?…. Fido, put your paw down!… So no one?… Interesting.  Well, why the heck do you waste so much of that valuable drinking water by flushing it down the ol’ porcelain throne?  It doesn’t have to be like...

Freshy Fresh with Freshaire Choice Paints

Freshy Fresh with Freshaire Choice Paints

One of the easiest things we can do to bring green strategies into our home is to spec out non-toxic, zero-VOC paints.  VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) are harsh chemicals that give paint that ‘paint’ smell and contribute to poor indoor air quality.  There have been a number of low-VOC products available from Sherwin Williams, Benjamin...
