Green Festival this Weekend

There’s been a lot of talk of home construction here this week, what with Wayan looking for a new kitchen, and Don talking about green construction, this weekend is the DC Green Festival at the Conference Center downtown.

If you’re interested in Green life in DC, this would be the place to go, with 350 Green Businesses on exhibit, and 125 speakers or so, it looks like it could rock. Tickets are $15, which mean they’re just as accessible as the technologies on display.

Check it out!

    It’s a bit off still, but in the land of green living, the Solar Decathlon is coming to DC. You cannot tour the houses until Oct. 12, but the college kids are already building on the mall late at night, so you might be able to catch bits and pieces of the build process. The official information is here: http://www.solardecathlon.org/

    It is cool to see this increased attention on green building practices and most people don’t realize that building green does not have to be only commercial buildings , so many homes and appartments can be built or modified to "green up" where we live.

    Remember that building Green is really all about improving efficiency!

    Check out this US Carbon Footprint Map, an interactive United States Carbon Footprint Map, illustrating Greenest States to Cities. This site has all sorts of stats on individual State & City energy consumptions, demographics and much more down to your local US City level…
