Green Irene Offers Eco-friendly Consulting to Chestertown Businesses

Green Irene LLC, a national consulting firm that promotes eco-friendly homes and offices, has just announced Chestertown-area Eco-Consultant Andy Goddard has added green office consulting to her eco-consulting practice.

Goddard is trained to provide eco-friendly consulting services to local businesses who want to reduce operating costs, create a healthier workplace for their employees, and attract green-minded customers and business partners.

“Employees appreciate efforts to reduce toxins in the workplace and to recycle like they do at home, while customers are starting to factor in ’green’ criteria when selecting their vendors,” Goddard said.

Eco-Consultants like Goddard, who have completed their green office training, perform Green Office Makeovers for businesses with up to 50 employees. Goddard will conduct an on-site consultation and develop a set of customized recommendations and findings. The business can choose which recommendations to implement, either on its own or with Goddard’s assistance.

The major topics covered in the Green Office Makeover include: energy and water conservation, improving indoor air quality, creating a toxic-free workplace, green purchasing and paper reduction strategies, lighting replacements, sustainable travel and transportation options, tax credits and other available federal, state and local financial incentives.

Within those main topic areas Goddard provides recommendations for immediate, free implementations through a detailed Green Home Office Report, as well as green office product and service suggestions.

Small business owners can also easily learn how to reduce costs through eco-friendly changes.

“There are many changes a business owner can decide to implement that will result in cost reductions almost immediately,” Goddard said. “For computers that are consistently on, businesses can download free software to activate the computer’s standby and hibernation settings, which saves $75 annually per computer. A business with 15 computers saves over $1,000 per year with this simple adjustment.”

Along with the consulting service, clients receive a three-month membership to Ask Green Irene. This extensive, “green” database allows clients to research green-focused questions that may arise after the initial Green Office Makeover. It also allows clients the ability to submit questions to a Green Irene researcher for an answer to any question not yet covered in the database.

Green Irene Brings Eco-friendly Home Consulting to Chestertown

Green Irene LLC, a national consulting firm that promotes eco-friendly homes and offices, has just announced Andy Goddard as its newest Eco-Consultant with the opening of her green consulting practice in Chestertown. Now, Goddard is an independent, authorized distributor of Green Irene consulting services and products.

According to Goddard, she is trained to provide eco-friendly consulting services to local homeowners who want to lead healthier, safer and more sustainable lifestyles – while saving money by reducing energy use.

“Many individuals are unaware of how the environment affects their day-to-day lives. Now, I can teach my neighbors eco-friendly tactics, such as to conserving water,” Goddard said. “I am so grateful to have come across this opportunity to educate Chestertown-area residents on what I have learned about taking care of our environment and conserving, for example, the limited fresh water we have in our community.”

Eco-Consultants like Goddard perform 90-minute Green Home Makeovers by walking through the client’s home to develop a set of customized recommendations. The major topics covered in the Green Home Makeover include: energy conservation, water conservation, water purity, indoor air quality, toxic-free living, energy efficient lighting, recycling, waste reduction, and safety and emergency preparedness.

“Within those main topic areas we provide recommendations for immediate, free implementation through a detailed Green Home Makeover Report and Family Action Plan, as well as green home product and service suggestions,” Goddard said. “Some of the things we include with our recommendations are water and air filtration products, energy-saving light bulbs in every shape, water conservation products, composters, and other products to live a more sustainable, healthy life.”

With electric, gas and water costs going up, investments to conserve in these areas also make great financial sense, Goddard said.

“Chestertown-area residents can save thousands of dollars by just making a few small adjustments. For example, energy-efficient light bulbs can cut your electric bill significantly, and low-flow shower heads and other items in our water-conservation kit can save thousands in reduced utility costs to heat wasted hot water,” Goddard said, adding that “even in tight economic times, investments that save money and have the added benefit of helping your family ’go green’ make sense.”

Along with the consulting service, local clients receive a three-month membership to Ask Green Irene. This extensive, “green” database allows clients to research green-focused questions that may arise after the initial Green Home Makeover. It also allows clients the ability to submit questions to a Green Irene researcher for an answer to any question not yet covered in the database.
