THE BEGINNING

Alyse, our founder, grew up in Denver and loves the outdoors. As a child, she experienced winters with no snow and witnessed contaminated rivers like the South Platte River and Cherry Creek. Knowing she wanted to make a difference, Alyse studied International Studies in Global Environment and Health at the University of Michigan.

During this time, she gained experience in real estate working in her family's business. She discovered that buildings account for almost 70% of our electricity consumption. So Alyse decided to use her knowledge of sustainability and her experience in real estate to change things. Working with organizations like Food & Water Watch, Environment America, WeWork and the New Zealand Government, Alyse helped people build sustainable communities.

When Denver passed the Green Roof Initiative in November, Alyse knew that developers would need help navigating the complicated law. She also knows that homeowners and renters want to lower their energy bills. At Sow Green, we believe in helping everyone create healthier, sustainable communities with green building design.

THE MISSION

Sow Green works to provide a turnkey solution for your green building design. From green roofs, solar energy, or energy retrofits, we are the green building consultants you need. We provide homeowners, architects, and developers a way to navigate a greener and healthier home while lowering electric bills.
