Greener Every Day was founded in 2009 by Rachel White, PhD in order to help individuals and organizations adopt and realize the benefits of sustainable practices. Rachel is a seasoned educator, skilled facilitator, creative thought leader, and successful change agent working to mainstream residential green building and personal sustainability.
Rachel has a PhD from Brown University. She trained and worked for more than a decade as a researcher and educator at Brown University and Hebrew College.
During her time in academia, Rachel developed a passion for green living. She made major energy efficiency improvements to her home (cutting her energy usage in half!), executed a green home renovation, and became actively involved in greening her community. She decided to leave her academic position so that she could devote herself full-time to advancing sustainability and green building.
You can read about Rachel’s green living journey and learn more about her perspective on the challenges and opportunities involved in greening our buildings and communities at The Greener Side of Life, the Greener Every Day blog. Rachel lives in Newton, MA (a suburb just west of Boston) with her husband, their two children, and their dog Butter.
