It's crazy to think we're now cruising through the new year. It's also sad to think about the tragedy that hit Haiti. As the world continues to turn, we'll keep talking about the most important stories that somehow touch on green building. We also want to thank our sponsor, Green Build Post, a green building forum that's documenting several industry trends, including the construction of a green, modular New World Home in The Hamptons, New York. Here's a summary of last month's coverage, if you missed anything:
Hope you had a moment to relax during Thanksgiving last week! Being November, we're thankful for a lot. Definitely, thanks to you for coming back every day and thanks to all our advertisers and supporters. With the holiday season approaching, it's going to be busy, so stay tuned. If you're looking for Christmas ideas, give a good green book to a friend. Or catch up on some of last month's coverage:
Hope you're enjoying a relaxing Halloween weekend. Don't forget to turn back the clock. In the mean time, now that you have an extra hour, feel free to browse through some of last month's coverage. We had a heavy amount of Solar Decathlon coverage, as well as several articles on prefab homes. Lots of homes are getting finished, and we'll keep covering the green ones. Plus, shout out to our newest sponsor, Green Build Post, a community to discuss current trends and products in green building.
We're quickly sliding into the winter months and conference season is definitely here. West Coast Green kicks off tomorrow, and we'll have some choice coverage as a media sponsor for the event. While you're waiting for that, though, make sure to check out some of our coverage from last month (links below). Also, I want to kick out a shout to one of our new sponsors, Mr. Green Points. Mr. Green Points has over 5,100 green product listings and can help you find reclaimed, renewable, low-emitting, recycled, and regional materials. Thanks to all our supporters! (more…)
Another month is now gone, and it flew by fast. We tried to balance out our coverage with a better approach to products and technology. Vantage was kind enough to show us their energy management system, and Oxygenics let us test out their new luxury showerhead. (I'm still testing it out, by the way). If you have a green product that you'd like us try, let's get in contact. Also, we're moving along with the job site, and from the stats, it seems like a lot of you are taking advantage of the new green job board. Check the Twitter and Facebook, and let's share, like, and retweet. Here's last month:
In addition to celebrating our third blog birthday, we were able to talk about some cool projects and technology in the month of July. A trend that's out there is what I'm calling the "flight to multi-family." Keep an eye on this. Also, Angela won The Earth-Sheltered House book giveaway, and Fultojd won the Strategy for Sustainability book giveaway. We have 5-6 other books on the shelf right now, which you can expect in giveaways this month. But before we get to that, check out these articles below to see if you missed something:
