Whether building a new home or doing a minor remodel, homeowners need a framework to guide their decisions. These decisions are based on values, and in Building A Sustainable Home, author Melissa Rappaport Schifman posits that there are really only three reasons to go green:

  • For Our Health: By building more sustainably, we reduce our exposure to harmful chemicals and toxins.
  • For Our Wealth: By building a more durable home and being more efficient with resources like water and electricity, we reduce our monthly utility bills and ongoing maintenance expenses.
  • For Our Soul: Collectively doing the right thing for our planet does make a difference, and that is soul-nourishing.
