“We are very excited to now be part of 1% for the Planet. We are a company of outdoor enthusiasts. My wife and I hiked the John Muir Trail for our honeymoon. Living in an ecosystem as fragile as the deserts of Arizona, the effects of industrialization and the need for conservation couldn’t be clearer. We believe that a strong community can have a much greater influence then individuals and some industries such as new home construction need to make some radical changes as a whole.” -Austin Trautman, LEED AP Homes
