A Green Leaf Home is about providing a foundation on the challenges our planet faces as you go through your life’s journey.
We don’t have all the answers; but we’ll do our best to provide plenty of tips and advice on how to make the world a better place. In many cases we also get into the ways true innovators are working to undo the challenges created by people.
In some cases you’ll need to draw your own conclusions on the long-term impacts we face. We can give you the background in many cases; but you need to make the decisions on what is right for you or your family.
What We Do
A Green Leaf Home is a resource for people looking to gain greater insight of the environmental challenges that affect our world.
Of all the questions which can come before this nation, short of the actual preservation of its existence in a great war, there is none which compares in importance with the great central task of leaving this land even a better land for our descendants than it is for us. – Theodore Roosevelt
