THE STORY:

Making our cities the GREENEST on Earth

Green Roof Philly is a non profit that provides “green” buildings, “green homes”, “green” renovations and “green” upgrades in low-income areas. Environmental issues are virtually ignored in low-income areas who could benefit from them the most. Green Roof Philly will also create new jobs in construction in collaboration with our Post Prison Employment Foundation.

We Will Offer

* Community revitalization programs which will assist communities in becoming competitive for business and neighborhood attraction.
* Provide home modifications for low income persons with physical disabilities.
* Help implement pollution prevention and energy efficiency projects.
* Provide high quality weatherization services.

We plan to implement these following programs

* LEED Certification Training
* Education workshops and activities
* Long Rang planning for sustainability

Here are some examples of benefits of a “Green” Roof

* Reduces the urban heat island effect
* Increases roof life span
* Reduces storm water run off
* Filters pollutants and CO2 out of the air
* Filters pollutants and heavy metals out of the rainwater
* Increases wildlife habitat in built-up areas
* Reduces heat loss and energy consumption in the winter
* Reduces sound pollution
* Adds property value to homes
* Improves air quality
