What’s good for the environment is good for you.
Green Living minimizes air pollution inside and outside your home.
It’s about making the right choices:
– Choices such as using sustainable and contaminant-free materials that are used for building houses and home furnishings.
– Using energy efficient appliances, lighting and heating and cooling systems.
-Making our homes so they use less energy by properly insulating them.
-You and I can have an impact on air pollution and global warming that affects us all.
20 million asthma and allergy sufferers, their family and friends “doing their part’ can make a difference.
The time is now.
Contrary to some beliefs, going green doesn’t mean we have to sacrifice comfort and convenience.
My company designed and installed the heating, cooling, ventilation and air purification system in a certified “Green Label” house that was also
certified as an American Lung Association “Health House” as well as “Energy Star” rated.
These three certifications go hand in hand.
When someone goes for just one of the certifications, it doesn’t take much more effort to get the other ratings.
But back to my point of sacrificing comfort and convenience.
This house sold for $1 miilion dollars!
No, you don’t have to spend a million dollars to have a green, healthy, energy-efficient house.
I just want you to do away with the notion that a green house doesn’t mean it’s made out of straw.
Other ways you can contribute:
– Look at your mode of transportation.
– Do you have a gas guzzler?
For those of you who have a car that uses diesel fuel, Biodiesel, a mixture of diesel fuel and vegetable oil is now available in some locations.
These fuel types burn much cleaner. Good for your car and the environment.
Electrical utilities are now offering the alternative to buy electricity that is generated from renewable sources such as solar, windmills and hydro-power plants.
This is just the beginning of the possibilties.
“Doing your part” is better for your health and the environment.
Why not start today!
