When she strolls around the massive expanse of her Marina at Marina Shores, she thinks she’s making a difference for the environment. When she heads into the massive boat-storage building, she sees hundreds of vessels illuminated by light passing through plastic panels instead of energy-sponging electrical lights.

"Green," she says.

At the swimming pool, she smiles at the pastel chairs, benches and tables made out of recycled plastic instead of wood.

"More green."

Along the property’s eastern edge, she marvels at the cranes, ibises and herons that make a tidal marsh their home.

"Mother Nature is as green as it gets."

The 56-year-old Higgs sees it everywhere.
