“If I asked you, how's your relationship with your romantic partner going? How's your family? and you said ‘Things are sustainable.’ That's hardly a ringing endorsement.  It should be far more than sustainable, it should be fun, it should be regenerative, it should be forward thinking and we have a long, long way to go here [within the green building movement].”
