Being environmentally friendly is becoming increasingly talked about as time goes on. Everything from vehicles to hair care products are being labeled as “green” or “eco-friendly,” and this trend is becoming more apparent within the household. Going green has an incredible amount of benefits for both the homeowners and the environment. Nearly every aspect of a household has a green, energy saving alternative available, and most of these changes can be implemented quite easily.

Creating a green home promotes an overall healthier environment, and also teaches individuals the importance of tending to the environment whenever possible. Plus, converting to a “green” lifestyle can help a family save large amounts of money in the long run, and a majority of the out-of-pocket expenses necessary to go green will likely be recovered in tax credits and rebates awarded for promoting eco-friendliness.

What is a Green Home?

Creating a green home means that the household is able to reduce costs, meaning that it uses less electricity than the average home, while also reducing the use of products that have a negative impact on the environment. Overall creating a green home can:



• Greatly reduce annual electricity bill expenses.
• Teach family about the importance of being environmentally friendly.
• Reduce a family’s overall carbon footprint.
