Good Greed

by Ray C Anderson                         1000511 11

(This article appeared originally in Green Money Journal, and is used by permission. This was not noted in the original print publication and we regret the error. For more information on Green Money Journal, visit greenmoneyjournal.com.)

Since you’re reading the Green Money Journal it’s likely that you’ve already made the mental shift to sustainability, and if that’s the case, welcome! I believe that shift happens one mind at a time, one company, one technology, one university curriculum, one industry, one community at a time. Furthermore, I have never met a “former environmentalist.” It’s true! Once you understand the truth and complexity of our environmental challenges, you are forever changed. My story demonstrates that. And fortunately for us and for our planet, that collective mental shift seems to be happening quickly, particularly in the important field of green building.

Interior Home Adaptation for Aging-In-Place

by Valerie Garrett                         1000505 259

Aging-In-Place (A-I-P) means remaining in your home and community as you age while remaining as independent as possible. When seniors are surveyed, they list remaining in their homes as their top priority. A-I-P and sustainable home design share much in common. Low-impact homes conserve water, energy and materials, have healthy air quality, lower carbon emissions, minimize waste, allow for household flexibility and frequently have space-efficient floor plans.

The United States Administration on Aging projects by 2030 the number of seniors 65 and older in the will be almost double what it was in 2000. The fastest growing segment of the population is those 85 and older. Whether building new or adapting an existing dwelling here are some interior upgrades to consider for your own home.

Ecological "Roofing"

Metal Roofing--Love It or Leave It—Nobody’s Indifferent

The Green Designation for Realtors

by Stephen Morris                         1000413 1654

Hip or Hype?

The "Green Seal," reports journalist Paul Smalera in MSN's "Money Watch" column , is Good Housekeeping Magazine's way of guaranteeing the quality of everything from yogurt to storm windows. Unfortunately, it only guarantees the quality of companies that advertise on its pages. Moreover, none if its advertisers are ever denied the designation. It's pure and simple "greenwashing," which Smalera defines as "the art of scoring an environmental touchdown simply by moving the goal posts."
