The professional cleaners of Blue Bay Window Cleaning apply the same expertise to polishing home windows that they do to shining up the American Bank Center Arena and Convention Center. They also pressure wash the siding and roofs of residential homes and scale high-rise buildings to stunt-double for local superheroes, always priding themselves on being thorough. In addition to window- and pressure-washing services, they also clear out gutters, clean roofs, and caulk commercial properties.
Having resolved at a young age to pursue his passion for green building, Jeff Kaplan created the Urban Land Institute's Young Leaders Program when he was just 21 years old. In late 2007, Jeff started New Living, a green building and home store whose high environmental standards earned the shop a B Corporation certification. Today, New Living sells exclusively eco-friendly products from ethical businesses, stimulating the local green economy while making green materials more affordable and accessible. Staff members passionate about responsible consumerism often help customers interested in repurposing and refinishing items. Kaplan's efforts at revitalizing Houston's small businesses and affinity for wearing capes earned him the title of Green Hero from the U.S. Green Building Council.
