Long before it was fashionable to be “green”, Jeff designed and built his solar heated … and cooled .. house. Snug and warm in the middle of February, cool in August. Fifteen years ago, Jeff adopted the Vegan, plant based, lifestyle for health reasons. As he studied the benefits of this lifestyle, he discovered the enormous, detrimental impact of the Standard American Diet (SAD) on the environment.  Animal agriculture is a curse on our planet.
