Shaya Kirkpatrick, one of the four Grades of Green founders, along with her husband Grant were featured in the March 2017 edition of Sunset Magazine. The combination of Shaya’s passion for the environment and Grant’s background in architecture (KAA Design, one of Grades of Green’s first supporting companies) allowed the duo to build a minimal environmental impact cabin. The article describes the unique eco-features of the cabin, including untreated, naturally decay-resistant redwood boardwalks and a long-lasting aluminum roof. The Grades of Green team is proud to have such an inspiring Board Member and Cofounder who not only teaches others to care for the environment, but also goes above and beyond to practice good environmental habits in her own life.
