Get the facts on going "Green"

Ready to take a step toward green? The Green REsource Council has assembled a variety of green resources to help you get started. There are a lot of misconceptions today about the time and money it takes to implement green home features and sustainable lifestyle practices. At the Green REsource Council, we want to set the record straight.

Myth: Going green will cost an arm and a leg.
WRONG! There are a variety of cost-effective ways to green your home and lifestyle that can actually SAVE you money. Discover this and many other reasons why to go green.

Myth: To have a green building, you need the building to be LEED certified.
WRONG! LEED is setting a standard for existing and new green homes and buildings. You can implement green products and practices into your home or office that reduce energy consumption, save money and save the environment without the building being LEED rated or certified.

Myth: One person can't make a difference.
WRONG! We believe that every step towards green is a step in the right direction. Whether you change one habit or your entire way of living, your actions can reduce your carbon footprint and make a world of difference in the long run.
