Depending on your familiarity with Fairfield, IA and Maharishi University of Management you may or may not know about KRUU LP-100.1 FM. Well, KRUU’s latest project Dream Green aims to: …inspire you, your family, your friends, Iowa businesses and organizations to consider and to implement energy efficiency strategies in your home, school or business. Dream Green is a showcase of Iowa’s statewide sustainable efforts where you will find useful ideas, support and inspiration for your own efforts toward energy efficiency and sustainability.
Dream Green is created and produced by KRUU’s popular host team Maharishi University Media and Communications Professor Stuart Tanner and KRUU Co-founder James Moore, AKA Tanner & Moore.
“Green is the color of tomorrow. If we want to create new jobs, lower energy costs, protect the vital resources of our environment and create a sustainable future for the state of Iowa and it’s citizens, then turning green is what we need to do. I’m excited by this series as Iowa is already a center for innovation and there are some really great stories about communities, businesses, educators and individuals who are demonstrating what can be done now and what real benefits can be gained. It’s going to be a fascinating journey.“ – Stuart Tanner
