She wants a streamlined, tailored, high-gloss, glam look,” says the owner of Cambridge, Mass.-based Kate Maloney Interior (KMI) Design. “‘Good luck,’ they told me. ‘I don’t know how you’re going to do this.’”But do it she did.

The company’s mantra of energy efficiency is illuminated throughout her household in Medway, Mass.“We’ve invested in energy-efficient windows and high-efficiency appliances. We also recycle as much as we can and get our two kids involved in that as well,” Bennett says. “It’s part of our daily routine and conversation.”The former Economics-Finance major brought that passion for living green — and 20 years of related experience — to CSG in late 2011.
