We already knew that Eva Longoria was passionate about building green at home, but now it appears that the Desperate Housewives actress is lending her energy to building green business centers as well.

Longoria has hooked up with two professionals involved in green building and real estate to form a company called The Greenville Project. According to the release, their vision is to “take a holistic approach to creating a dynamic model for green retail centers that comply with the highest of environmental standards.” Apparently, their first (of a planned many) eco-mall sites will hit in Portland, Oregon. The centers will use 30% less electricity than traditional malls, 50% less water, and recycle over 1.2 million gallons each year. High-efficiency faucets, graywater treatment, and rain water catchment will be implemented — as well as renewable energy systems, natural light designs, and high-insulation and green roofs.

Sure puts my mall to shame.

To check out all the details — and learn more about the designs and vision of the group — hit the Greenville Project website here.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
