GREENSBORO, N.C. - Trish Holder, a writer and marketing consultant for the HVAC industry, will speak at the National Association of Environmental Law Societies (NAELS) Annual Conference to be held at the Vermont Law School, March 20-22.

Holder’s presentation, “Greenspiration™: How to Have Your Home and Green It Too,” will detail her experience as a “typical” homeowner endeavoring to build a green, yet traditional looking home. From geothermal heat pumps to dual flush toilets, Holder will share the choices she’s made - and the decisions that lie ahead.

“Most middle-class homeowners aren’t willing to sacrifice comfort or appearance for the sake of building green. Through Greenspiration, I hope to demonstrate that you don’t have to,” remarked Holder, whose home will be built in an existing subdivision in Greensboro, N.C.

The NAELS conference, which will take place in Burlington and South Royalton, Vt., will focus on a range of topics from climate change to alternative energy solutions. Speakers will include experts in environmental science and law, as well as keynote speaker U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).
