Going green makes sense
Our planet is on the brink of disaster. We are using more natural resources than the Earth is able to produce. At the rate that we are consuming natural resources, it won’t be long before we have used up all that the planet can give us, and we will be leaving the future generations without any. People are becoming aware of the problems that affect our environment, and are looking for ways to reduce our destructive impact on our world.
The place to start going green is in our own lives. By changing the way we live, we are contributing. Buildings consume 14% of potable water, 40% of raw materials, and 39% of energy in the United States alone (according to the US Green Building Council).
