"Rhode Island is the smallest state in the most powerful nation
on earth. We still believe that if ever there were a state that was
a ripe model for transformation, to show the rest of the nation how
to grow in harmony with the earth – Rhode Island is it. We are trying,
in the words of William McDonough, to 'create a cultural change,'
where sustainability is on everyone’s mind.”
