Mr. Pitt: First Green Home in New Orleans Completed!
One of our favorite do gooders’ pet projects has now seen a landmark in his efforts. Here is an excerpt from an article about the first green home completed in New Orleans with large contributions from Mr. Pitt.
“Before Brad Pitt launched his Make It Right foundation to build 150 new sustainable homes in New Orleans’ devastated Lower 9th Ward, he lent his name and cash to assisting Global Green USA with a similar initiative.
Though on a much smaller scale compared to the “Pink Houses” neighborhood, Global Green’s Holy Cross campaign is nonetheless impressive. Five single-family homes as well as an 18 unit apartment complex all built green and saving an estimated $1200 to $2400 a year in utility bills.”
