About

Welcome to Jenny Green Jeans!

jennifer-prescott.headshotI’m Jennifer Prescott and I’m passionate about sustainable, environmentally responsible living. I make my home (along with husband, daughter, and dog Josie) in a Manhattan apartment and a small house in upstate Connecticut. Experiencing both an urban life and a rural one keeps me in touch with the Sustainability issues that face most of us. I want to inspire you with advice and information on how greener choices big and small can impact our lives and the health of our planet.

How I can help you at home or in your workplace:

As a Home market editor for top shelter magazines such as Real Simple, Better Homes & Gardens, and Organic Style, I became excited by the blossoming Green product market. I gained intimate, pre-market knowledge of all the latest and greatest green and sustainable products and manufacturers. This market insight, in combination with my editorial design eye, opened up the field of sustainable design, Green Consulting and Sustainability Coordinating to me.

In my consulting role, whether it’s addressing building materials and heating & cooling systems or paints, finishes, furnishings and cleaning products—my goal is a toxic-free environment for the health of the inhabitant. The best news is that when an indoor environment is healthy for you, odds are it’s healthy for the planet, too.

How I can help in your community:

As a Sustainability Coordinator, I also encourage a smaller carbon footprint in the community. I implement recycling systems and waste reduction programs and offer education on indoor air quality and energy conservation as well, often saving organizations a great deal of money and boosting health benefits.

As a co-founder of Green Schools NY Public School Composting Pilot, I experienced first hand how grass roots ingenuity and tenacity can change the landscape. After implementing the pilot program on NYC’s Upper West Side, the New York City Departments of Sanitation and Education not only adopted the program, but also expanded a 2012 cafeteria composting program citywide! (Read my report on the pilot program’s success here.)

If you need someone to advise or speak to your school or community organization, I’m happy to share my knowledge about how important and how cost-effective various sustainable initiatives can be for a community’s long-term health.
