This video examines five individuals helping to make a greener planet. One World Trade Center has elevators that produce energy and glass that allows most offices to be lit by daylight. One Bryant Park has a power plant and captures water for use onsite.
Nemah Khawaja works as a plumber; Jordan has one of the lowest levels of water availability. Wise Women volunteers to fix broken pipes and install water-saving devices. Poorly maintained systems waste water resources.
One-third of the world's food is lost or wasted. Selina Juul creates the "Stop Wasting Food" Facebook page; Rema 1000 no longer offers bulk food discounts. The Empire State Building has been renovated to include several sustainable features including windows that reduce energy consumption.
Dan Danahar creates butterfly havens for urban areas. Students watch for pollinators at Dorothy Stringer School; use local provenance plants. The Empire State Building has the "chiller plant" that is specifically designed to reduce energy consumption.
The Empire State Building proves that whole-building energy retrofits are economically justifiable and make sense. Robert Bezeau builds houses out of plastic bottles; Americans throw away 2.5 million plastic bottles every hour.
Vanessa Didon protects and monitors the critically endangered hawksbill turtle. Poachers and plastic debris harm the marine animal. The females return to nest on the same beach they were hatched.
