Did you know? The energy generated by fossil fuels for a single home puts more carbon dioxide into the air than two average cars. The energy use of buildings is very significant.

This section is created for homeowners, home buyers, home builders, renters, home designers, architects, contractors, do-it-your-selfers, and any other individual who is considering the carbon footprint of their living situation. If you want to consider green building materials for a new home, improve the energy efficiency of your current dwelling, or you are trying to evaluate whether remodeling or a weatherization effort would make dollar-sense, you’ve come to the right place.
