Studies have shown that there would be an approximate 10% decrease in emissions that help cause global warming if every building in the States were to be built using green construction standards.
There would also be about a 70% waste reduction in building materials if the standards set for green real estate in Bothell and the rest of the country were met. There is an incredible amount of waste when it comes to house building and green housing addresses this issue head-on.
Green homes that are currently being built in Bothell use recycled building materials that help reduce the waste. These homes also last longer than a conventional home with less maintenance required.

Imagine living completely off the grid and putting your hard-earned money in your pocket instead of writing a check to the heating company. This is a practical solution that just makes sense and will one day be a standard for any buildings under construction.
