Margaret HydeMargaret Hyde is not only an eco-author, but also an eco-homeowner in Southern California. Hyde’s green journey began as a traditional American homeowner — living in a house too big for her family that she didn’t really need. Upon investigation, she found a c.1910 Craftsman home in the area and remodeled it extensively to fit her family’s green lifestyle. It later became the first LEED Platinum-certified remodel in the U.S.
