Green Gab Podcast | The Stuff our Homes Are Made of – Resources and Materials
The stuff our homes are made of has changed as the world has become a smaller place. While houses used to be built from whatever was available, usually locally, materials now may come from anywhere and everywhere.
Using resources – materials and products - wisely is a key practice of green building and includes practices ranging from optimizing use of resources (such as wood for framing) to choosing durable materials that will stand the test of time and offer lower maintenance.
Get in on the Gab to learn about the stuff that makes up your home!
Every week on iTunes and The Green Gab Podcast, get the gab with us as we share what we’ve done, as well as tips for greening up your home, your job, your family and your life! Get in on the gab for why green matters – to you, your family and friends and your community.
