Covering issues ranging from solar power to biodiversity conservation, the Green Living Project (GLP) documents and promotes global sustainability stories through its website, social media properties and nationwide event series. “We’re in the business of storytelling, and our theme is sustainability,” GLP founder and president Rob Holmes says. 

Last year GLP documented 20 projects throughout seven countries across Africa, including the Mihingo Lodge in Uganda. Run by a husband-and-wife team, Mihingo was built with locally harvested dead and unused olive wood. Centered on sustainability principals, the lodge allows both employees and guests to experience wildlife and nature. When it comes to renewable energy, eco-lodges, wildlife conservation, and community-development projects, “some of the simplest ideas are often the best,” Holmes says.
