Original Green Distribution has officially announced plans to assist in the development of an extensive eco-community at Pine Ridge Reservation which is considered one of the most destitute areas in the Unites States. Teaming with Alex White Plume, one of Pine Ridge Reservation´s prominent leaders, Original Green Distribution will arrange for a team of architects, builders, designers, journalists, teachers and renewable energy experts to travel to the Pine Ridge Reservation in Manderson, South Dakota later this year to develop the process that will be required to break ground in Spring of 2013.
“It is an honor to work side-by-side with Alex White Plume and the Pine Ridge residents. This initial trip to Pine Ridge Reservation will be the start of both the design and planning of an extremely viable and sustainable eco-community in addition to the development of a deliberate plan for future fund raising efforts which will ultimate result in achieving the massive goal of rebuilding the Pine Ridge community one home at a time.”, stated Ken Anderson, Principal of Original Green Distribution.

We are planning to use the most advanced eco technology available today including hemp and lime construction, solar energy, green rooftops, eco sanitation systems and an amazing amount of other sustainable materials and methods.”
