Welcome to the June issue of RNN GreenZine. We’re pleased to introduce you to the work of Shahin Barzin, founder and principal of the Rhode Island-based interdisciplinary architectural and design firm S. Barzin Architect. Shahin is up for the challenge of bringing the 120-year-old, 44, 000-square- foot Belcourt of Newport back to its original splendor, while incorporating the latest in green technology. Owned by Carolyn Rafaelian – design visionary, philanthropist and founder of the global jewelry/lifestyle brand Alex and Ani – Belcourt of Newport is a feast for the eyes and is a piece of history well worth preserving… If you are familiar with Carolyn’s company Alex & Ani, you know it’s all about positive energy and empowering the human spirit. In his column, RNN Founder and President Peter Arpin found this same energy while touring Belcourt of Newport… This month’s Green in the City column offers readers a creative spin on repurposing and upcycling, including new ways to utilize old kitchen sponges… Steve Pozner, Vice President of East Taunton, MA-based GLOBALCYCLE shares his infinite wisdom about ways in which companies can help heal the planet through the use of treated industrial wastewater. Even though access to recycled or reclaimed industrial wastewater is available, Steve asserts that many companies rely on city water or water from onsite wells… Five Ways to Travel Green offers tips about how to do your part to help protect the environment while away from home. Not only are these tips practical, but they will also help create fun, fond and fabulous memories.

And, of course, don’t forget to salute the summer solstice on June 21!

Here’s to a great and green summer…
