An advocate for sustainability, Wright challenges all to ‘green’ America’s landscapes, create a legacy of healthier urban/suburban communities. For, the future holds a unique opportunity: the opportunity not to just be a caretaker but a person who cares!
Be the person who sets a Climate, not merely adjusts to a preexisting one; creates an encouraging Attitude, not practices ambivalence; is Receptive to people without losing sight of personal needs; and demonstrates Empathy for others while keeping problems in perspective.
Instead of allowing others define life’s role, acquire eco knowledge. Become known as the person who 'CAREs' – enables conservation, accountability, recovery and eco-efficiency!
