Green House Effect


The last few weeks you’ve been focused on getting your body and your budget in shape. But your place could use a bit of a makeover too.

Tamara Li, Oahu’s only green home consultant, can get your home on track to being more environmentally friendly.

In a 90-minute walk-through, she’ll show you simple ways to make your place more energy efficient, how to reduce electricity and water usage, reduce waste, and make your cleaning routine less toxic. She’s even got CFLs and non-toxic detergents on hand so you can get started right away.

Li offers her services through Green Irene, a national network of trained eco-advisors. Li is a natural − she has an environmental studies degree from UH and works for the city’s curbside recycling program.

Maybe it is easy being green.

A green home consultation with Tamara Li is $99. Reach her at tamara.honolulu@greenirene.com or visit www.greenirene.com/1002
