Green Home Building and Remodeling: Appliances

Green your home appliances For many, home is the most important place on Earth. It's within our houses that we establish the bulk of our worldviews, so it's important that the structures themselves represent those values. This week we're providing tips for those of you in the process of building or remodeling about how to make your home harmonious with the rest of the planet.

Tip #2: Choose Eco-Friendly Appliances

Planet-positive appliances and installations include low-flow (or water-freetoilets, water-saving faucets and showerheads, anything with an Energy Star label, efficient refrigerators, and solar water heaters. Buying secondhand, or getting 'em via freecycling, is, of course, always preferable.
