Title: GreenHomeGuide
Url: http://www.greenhomeguide.com/
Publisher: U.S. Green Building Council
Description: Everything is going "green" these days, and more and more builders and homeowners are actively seeking to incorporate energy efficiency elements into their residences. The U.S. Building Council has sponsored this site to provide expert know-how on how to create green information regarding countertops, bathrooms, landscaping, stone & tile coverings, and flooring. First-time visitors can get a sense of the site's mission by looking through some of the recent "Ask A Pro" questions. This section provides interested parties with the opportunity for concerned parties to ask experts questions such as "How much will it cost to install solar panels on my 2000 sq. ft. home in San Francisco?". In the "Know-How" area, visitors can browse over sections that include "Furniture" and "Kitchens" to learn how to choose low-toxicity finishes, energy-efficient appliances, and durable surfaces. Finally, visitors can also use the "Search for a Green Pro" feature to look for a professional in their area who adheres to such methods and principles.
