Green, Doing it Right!

Good Day Oregon on Fox 12 did several shows tracking a "Green" remodel done by Neil Kelly of what they called the Jaqua home, right here in Portland, Oregon. I felt compelled to look a little further into the claims made by Dave Schmitke of Good Day Oregon so I went to the Neil Kelly website. There I found specifics about the companies "Green" projects and explainations about why the products used are "Green". I also found the videos from the Good Day Oregon series, which I watched again. If you don't have time to watch all 4 parts, which total about 20 minutes at least watch the last one Part 4--Cabinets Can Be Environmentally Friendly Too.

The Neil Kelly website has great information and if you or someone you know is in need of assistance with a Build or Remodel project or to learn more about Neil Kelly go to

Although our class project has been directed at greenwashing I felt it important to let others know when an honest and successful attemp is being made by one of our local businesses.

Thank you Neil Kelly for addressing environmental sustainability.
