I can’t believe how fast 2010 is flying by, but October is here — and at Charles & Hudson, that means the spotlight centers on all things green building.
Green building, an all-encompassing terms that includes both environmentally friendly practices and eco-friendly materials, continues to increase in popularity as consumers and professionals seek to create, work in and inhabit sustainable, long-lasting structures that have a diminished ecological impact.
One of the best things about green building is that you don’t have to tackle a huge project, such as building a new house, to incorporate environmentally friendly practices into your everyday DIY life.
Consider smaller changes, such as new windows, a biomass heating source, or even a few new gadgets to boost your home’s green factor without eradicating your budget.
Check back throughout the month as we bring you the latest green building news, tips, products, projects and more. You may have heard the saying about viewing the world through rose-colored glasses, but this month, we’re all about seeing green.
