SUSTAINABLE HOME PROJECT
CREATE A GREEN HOME WITH US!
We are learning ways to create an eco-friendly and green home, one that is cozy, functional and smart to live in.
Join us on our journey to live consciously and sustainably, living in closer harmony with our community and planet.
Over the next six weeks we will take on home improvement projects that anyone can do in their own home that will help you save money, energy and improve your home's value.

Eco Friendly Paint
We are working with no VOC non-toxic paints that helps reduce common indoor odors from your pets, cooking and smoke to help rooms stay fresher, longer. They help improve indoor air quality by reducing VOC levels from potential sources like carpet, cabinets and fabrics.
Pick floor coverings that are natural. We have chosen wood. Wood is a prime example of a material that is sustainably harvested. This means it comes from well-managed forests and that the supply chain is documented and certified.
Energy Efficient Appliances
If you've been in a home improvement or appliance retailer, you likely recognize the Energy Star logo.
But do you know what it means?
In order for a manufacturer to receive an Energy Star rating, they must meet certain guidelines. The new appliances we are installing will save on energy and our energy bill. We are also donating the old appliances to Habitat for Humanity so they are recylced and/or reused.
