What is your favorite sustainability topic?

Green Building

Is there anything specific you hope to accomplish by joining this group?

Our goal is to build a eco-friendly, net zero home in the area. We want to show that it is possible to build such a house without spending a fortune. We need the input of other people who can offer friendly advice and leads to 'eco-helpers'.


My wife and I moved to Glen Ellyn three months ago after spending seven years in Cape Town, South Africa. We are retired but still an active couple who likes to cycle and meet with like-minded people.

What Patrick M. is saying about this Meetup Group

Keep in touch so that you can see our latest update to our house which now includes solar panels on a backyard pavilion. We are now going into Phase III, which will deal with water storage and a sustainable garden.
