CREATING A GREEN HOME

If you’re thinking about creating a green home, you’ll want to check out this new book by the National Association of Home Builders – Living Green Effortlessly: Simple Choices for a Better Home.

(NAHB) A new title recently released from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) offers simple tips for readers to make their homes greener. The publication, Living Green Effortlessly: Simple Choices for a Better Home, published by MyHome Press, the consumer imprint of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), lays out ways to create a green home by using steps to increase a home’s value, and save money.

Author Marla Esser Cloos shares her expertise and empowers readers to make simple changes to buying habits that affect a home both inside and out. Whether living in a small apartment in the city, or a single-family home in the suburbs, Cloos shows consumers ways to make any home a green home. From integrating smart technology to planting a rain garden, there are many ways to live greener.  The book covers topics ranging from landscaping and home maintenance to home systems and household products.

According to Cloos, “Living green has to be a blend of the stuff you buy and the things you do. If each of us built five simple practices or changes in buying habits into our daily routines, we would all soon have our own Everyday Green Homes—and we would change the world.”

Marla Esser Cloos, The Green Home Coach, is an NAHB Master Certified Green Professional, LEED AP and Missouri Women Business Enterprise. She is the founder and co-host of the Green Gab Podcast on iTunes and GreenHomeCoach.com. You can find her blogging on Green Home Coach and Proud Green Home. Her articles have appeared in Green Home Builder, Building Women and The Healthy Planet.
