About Us

SCGH (formerly Sierra Club Green Home) was created in 2008 in partnership with Sierra Club—America’s oldest, largest, and best-known environmental organization. In 2014, it was acquired by leading digital content marketing agency, Frac.tl.

SCGH is a global blog that keeps you updated on the latest progress in social responsibility, including: 
-featured stories
-business & global megatrend insights
-green home & style inspiration
-profiles & expert advice

All content found on our site is original unless otherwise noted. Our education is developed by a dedicated writing staff with tremendous experience and credentials in all things green. We have tried to deliver an honest, balanced perspective and will continue to update our articles as new issues and solutions arise.

Below is a brief description of each of our key team members. But first, we’d like to thank Gary Rappeport. Without his imagination, this project would never have happened.
