star Brad Pitt delivered a powerful counterpunch: His Make It Right
organization has partnered with local and national businesses to help rebuild the 9th Ward of New Orleans, where flooding wiped out many homes and businesses. What’s most notable is the way Pitt’s group addresses affordable housing: These houses are architectural showcases, designed and built using state-of-the-art sustainable technologies, including more than 150 Cradle to Cradle
materials and techniques that emphasize health, safety and long-term product lifecycles.
