"A society built on green design, sustainable energy and closed loop systems, a civilization afloat on a cloud of efficient, non-toxic, recyclable technology." ~~Alex Nikolai Steffan



Since first discussed here, 18 states have joined Florida in passing legislation preventing anyone from telling you that you cannot put up a clothesline or (in Florida's case) a solar collector.

This includes a homeowner's associations (HOAs) and condominium rules, covenants, etc.  Except, you can't hang your towels (or other items) over the railings of your apartment or condo railing.  Right to Dry only goes so far!

Here's the Florida Statute:  § 163.04. Energy devices based on renewable resources

Learn more about the Right to Dry and other tips for greening your home at the upcoming Sustainability Summit this Wednesday, October 31st at the Turnbull Center in Tallahassee.  You can choose from four tracks:
