Richmond, VA, December 07, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- As the holiday season approaches, are you considering gift choices? For many, the focus is ‘hearth and home’ but from an eco-chic – environmental stewardship - perspective, a focus of ‘plow, not hearth’ is more appropriate. For, from the rain forests of south-east Alaska to the deciduous forests of the Mid-Atlantic region, climate change has reaped havoc on America's landscape.

From Eco-weak to Eco-chic, green America’s landscape:
As the recipient of the ‘Turning America from Eco-weak to Eco-chic’ award sponsored by Project Evergreen, Today’s Garden Center magazine and Hines Horticulture, Wright encourages all to create landscapes from a sustainable point of view, seeking to reduce their carbon footprint as well as feed their families pesticide free produce. “The challenge,” says Wright, “for present-day communities is to create landscapes from an eco-chic point of view, a ‘waste not, and want not’ ecological commitment: become caretakers for the environmental community.”
