New members sign commitment sheets with short- and long-term goals toward decreasing carbon footprints, and volunteers renovate the houses of qualifying low-income homeowners to provide a healthier, more affordable living environment – doing everything from upgrading to Energy Star appliances to installing rain collection systems, working from a checklist of sustainable, energy-efficient practices for great progress in the homes and in their communities. Under the umbrella of the nonprofit A Nurtured World, this innovative program puts green smarts and big hearts together, one little house at a time.
