Greenbuild International Conference and Expo

Today through Friday I will be attending the U.S. Green Building Council's Greenbuild International Conference and Expo in Boston. This year's theme is "Revolutionary Green: Innovations for Global Sustainability." The three-day conference will give leaders and media interested in green building a chance to meet peers and industry experts and discover the latest products and technologies.

For more information about Greenbuild, go here.

For more information about the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), a "non-profit organization dedicated to sustainable building design and construction," visit their site here.

And don't forget to visit renovateyourworld.com's Green Living Page for new content every week. I hope to have some interesting news to share with you after the expo!

And hopefully once more and more people get on board with green building and green living, that the price of materials will not be so high.

And my hopes are, too, that "green" will eventually not be a special category of building but rather a standard incorporated into all building practices.

Green has become huge in commercial construction and I am very happy to see green becoming a factor in residential projects a well.

Great work!

Mainstreaming Green

Apart from the economic advantages of building green, there are a number of aspects (especially in the indoor air quality considerations) where building green connects directly to health, safety, and welfare issues. Building codes have always been based on these issues, so I hope that someday SOON many green building options become written into building codes.
