The popular foundation Make It Right, built by the equally popular actor Brad Pitt has received an honor by the US Green Building Council for its outstanding achievement in eco friendly housing.
Brad Pitt was also in New York recently at the Clinton Global Initiative to discuss his current and future plans for his Make It Right Foundation, which aims to rebuild a ward in New Orleans.
So far 13 of 150 affordable and sustainable homes have been built (with some costing only $35 a month in electricity to run), and now future plans call for eco duplex housing.
Brad Pitt and his NOLA foundation have brought a great deal of awareness in the GREEN building movement and he’s helped alot of people out, but it’s still out of reach for the average American.
Here’s hoping that other celebrities with deep pockets such as Pitt initiative similar projects across the country.
