Trim Tab

Trim Tab Magazine is our quarterly online that is awash with provocative articles, interviews and news on the issues, designs and people that are truly transforming the built environment. Our mission for the magazine is to focus on critical issues and leverage points for effecting change and truly transforming the built environment. Trim Tab is awash with provocative content—a comprehensive resource on the latest developments from people who are redefining how we design, construct and operate buildings and communities. The International Living Future Institute is premised on the belief that providing a compelling vision for the future is a fundamental requirement for reconciling humanity’s relationship with the natural world. We created Trim Tab magazine to advance this vision and provide a source for in-depth information on emerging trends and leading-edge ideas.

To Empower Black Communities, Power Our Country with Clean Energy
Why do African American families use less energy than white households, but pay more for it—literally and figuratively? It’s true. The average African American family emits 20% less carbon dioxide than the average white household does, yet we are more susceptible to increases in energy and water costs that result from climate change.
