The “Queen of Green”? You be the Judge
Cheap-shot alert! Because yes, we’re all sent cheesey emails from publicists that could be posted here for a laugh. So we resist-resist-resist until along comes one that makes me say HOLD ON, I can’t stand it any longer; this one MUST BE MOCKED.
I’ll used italics to highlight the most ironic and ridiculous bits.
Looking for a true champion in going green? My client, celebrity landscape architect Ghada Dergham, knows the way to living a greater and greener life with her tips and tricks on lifestyle changes, cooking ideas, and better product use.
The term “going green” has become crowded with an abundance of companies and personalities trying to tack on to a trend, with little care for its actual meaning: taking easy action to reduce the damage we do to the planet. Dergham- who is renowned for her charming portfolio of transformed outdoor spaces, has been investing her free time in how to improve her own practices and living greener. By making some fun lifestyle changes – upcycling old household goods into fabulous decor, or propagating edible plants – living green becomes more glamorous than composting and turning off lights when you leave a room.
Dergham also has fun and creative approaches to greener cooking, too! A little attention to an at-home garden can save money and also help with some tasty recipes. While she takes the environment seriously, Dergham is aware that we can be lighthearted in our approaches to living greener. Every one of Dergham’s tips are approaches she practices at home, and not superfluous fodder in a saturated market of “going green.”
These are just a few of Ghada Dergham’s fun, at-home solutions to making a Greener home. You don’t need a massive budget or a huge lawn to make a great impact… All you need is a passionate master of DIY Eco-friendly living, and that is Ghada Dergham.
Please consider her for a feature on being the Queen of Green!
I was going to give the queen a pass until that last bit of ignorance, about not needing a huge lawn to make a great impact, meaning a great impact on the environment, one presumes. The ass-backwardness of which thank God I don’t have to explain to Gardenstatephotography readers. So here’s your feature!
It’s fair to judge the sustainability of the Queen of Green’s portfolio, right? So have a look, if you dare. Above are a couple of my favorite examples but they’re probably not all this bad, and I don’t know the flora of Florida, after all.
Then there’s the big picture – those humongous homes and the far greater harm done to the environment by their ridiculous square footage. And don’t you just know their owners have others homes, too? Sorry, but when vacation homes claim to be “green,” I call that “tacking on to a trend, with little care for its actual meaning.”
But that’s enough snark out of me. What do YOU guys think of the Queen of Green?
