Earth Day

Janet O'Dea and Dean Glass man the SOHO booth at EarthFair.

SOHO exhibited at EarthFair this year for the first time to raise awareness of the huge environmental benefits of preservation; we spread the word through Carl Elefante's great words that "the greenest building is the one that is already built." Thanks go to the SOHO members who helped us man the booth and talk to so many people (this is the largest EarthFair in the world) who had never thought about the connection before and who were open to learning more. Learn more about sustainability and preservation online now at, where we have gathered articles, statistics and information, and an embodied energy calculator that will tell you just how much that historic building really means to the saving of our environment.
