Steve Foushee: As part of the business community, my interest and passion began building steam when I learned how sustainability could affect the “bottom line”. Now, as a soon to be parent, I have learned the true meaning of sustainability . . . My purpose is to make this a better world, not only for my children, but for future generations.
Aaron Bowman: I’m a member of the USGBC South Carolina Chapter because I want to be part of the organization that promotes Green Building and sustainable development in South Carolina. It’s my responsibility as an architect to advocate for more sustainable construction practices. The USGBC SC is working hard to educate professionals and the general public about the importance of green building and the impact it can have on our lives. The work done in support of green schools is especially exciting; it represents an opportunity engage the next generation of South Carolinian’s in a dialogue about sustainability and conservation.
Jonathan Edens: “I volunteer as the USGBC SC Chapter website manager because it provides a great opportunity to give back to my community, profession, and ultimately –the future of our environment.
Adam Bernholz: “I joined USGBC SC and choose to volunteer because I view healthy, sustainable, and efficient buildings as fundamentally important to our planet. Without a passionate voice, these issues are all-too-often under appreciated or outright disregarded. I view green buildings as a fundamental right that should be available to all.”
