AIR DATE: April 11, 2012

So you think you're helping the planet if you drive a hybrid or use recycled paper products. There's much more to living green than those things. There's building green but most of us don't have a chance for a do-over. We have to make do with what we have and modify it and renew it. But after a tornado in Greensburg, Kansas, that town got to remake things anew. Architect Daniel Wallach is in town to talk about his experience. And the founder of Treehugger.com is also visiting. He also created the site, lifeedited.com, which offers plenty of suggestions for living green and simplifying your life.
 
GUESTS:
Daniel Wallach, architect, Greenburg, Kansas
Graham Hill, Founder, Treehugger.com and Lifeedited.com

    COMMENTS:
    Over 2Bucks a square foot to rent, for what is now a hope and a prayer? Sounds excessive, especially in this economy. Keep the prices down, particularly for those willing to make a longer term lease type of commitment. Give people a half way decent deal on rent, buttressed by a budding community that they can relate to, and values will rise.
