Focus and Scope
The purpose of Elemental Green is to be the premier online destination for everything related to green home building and renovation. We want to inspire green dreaming, demystify the process of making those dreams come true, and create an experience of discovery – helping people find sustainable solutions they may have never known existed. Currently, we are looking for the following types of content:
- Diverse & Inspiring Projects: Green homes come in all shapes and sizes and we show them off in all of their green glory — LEED homes, passive homes, net zero homes, Living Building Challenge homes, tiny homes, prefabs, shipping container homes, eco-apartments, lofts, condos and more! Share your projects, big and small, indoors and out, to help inspire others.
- Innovative Products: We intend on making this the one-stop shop for everything a homeowner needs for green building and renovation. And we intend on being a trusted resource, so greenwashing has no place on our site. At this time, we are prioritizing on products which can be deployed now, so please avoid “Coming Soon” technologies.
- Understandable & Informative Articles: Going green is a journey and a constant learning curve. We know from experience that sometimes the information is overwhelming and other times it’s so wonky it’ll put you to sleep. Our goal is to translate, demystify, and hopefully even delight. That said, we ask that:
- Articles are credible/authoritative, but also conversational in tone.
- Claims and statistics are referenced.
- Copy (and linking) is not overly self-promotional.
- Any links go to reputable sources and not spam sites. Links should also not lead to competitors of our site or be affiliate links.
- You include a short bio that (at the very least) explains your expertise on the issue.
