Green Home and Environment
There is no questions that humans have done some damage to our
environment. We are all concerned about the climate changes happening
around us. People created this mess, and we will need to fix it.
Although it is not a solution, conservation of natural resources and the
reduction of waste products will slow the rate of change. This will buy
time while more permanent solutions can be discovered.
One thing we can do is build green homes. The normal home in the United
States utilizes a lot of energy that could be otherwise saved. We cannot
continue to ignore the problems we have caused on this earth. It is
important that we all pitch in and try our hardest to tread lightly on
this delicate planet. There are many things to consider when you build a
There are many things to consider in the supplies we use from day to day

these products, is the first step in determining the products we use.
The next thing to consider is where they come from and what method must
be used to get each product to us so they can be used. One must consider
what is already available where they live in order to make best use of
the products in their own environment. These are all things to consider
when "going green."
It's also crucial that your home be designed to be energy efficient,
including proper insulation so that you don't guzzle energy for heating
up your home in the winter and cooling off during the summer. To build
green homes you need to seriously research green construction and
You can also invest in an energy source for your home. These days many
green homes have solar panels. They also have windmills. These are the
best forms of sustainable energy that are readily available in most
regions. They are not a panacea, but we need to start somewhere.
Something else you need to be aware of when selecting a house is where
it is located. If your house is constructed a long way from your job and
you must use your car, you are missing the point- you want to reduce
your dependency on your vehicle. Options include sharing a ride or using

Recently there is a new awareness of our environment and the need to
preserve it for future generations.
Green construction is environmentally friendly and energy saving.
Green homes use no gas or oil for heating. Most of the energy used
in these homes comes from solar heat harnessed from the sun and
windmills. Of course this won't solve all the problems our planet is
facing but it is a beginning. A lot of people undertaking Charlotte
renovations are also adding green features to their already existing
homes. We could also live closer to work to reduce using our cars,
carpool or use public transportation
