Being the Greenest DJ in America, a title given him by Earth Day Network, Cerphe has the opportunity to meet environmental leaders and tour earth-friendly facilities on a regular basis. Recently he toured Asbury Methodist Village in Gaithersburg, MD.

Thanks to a partnership with Sodexo, Cerphe found AMV to be "an eco-friendly and surprisingly cheery retirement community of charming courtyard homes, quaint villas and snazzy apartments"  As he reports, Sodexo has helped Asbury Communities save more than $1.7 million on gas, electricity and water, freeing up funds for care.
