Like a minimalistic design. Our audience for the website is members who choose to live their lives conscious of the environment. Those who drive electric and hybrid cars, those who use wind turbins and solar tubes for lighting, those who use recycled jeans or soybean for insulating their home, overall those who are looking to going off the "grid" or at least to minimize their usage of toxic and wasteful resources.
