Making smarter building material choices during renovation or new home development is a key way that you can help green your home. In addition, everyday decisions about household products (e.g., furniture, furnishings, appliances, electronics, and other goods) can also green your home and lifestyle. Keep in mind that sometimes it takes a little work to make the greenest choices. Different green goals may conflict with one another, and just because a product is advertised as “green” doesn’t mean that it really is the most environmentally friendly choice. But the more you learn and the more questions you ask, the better equipped you will be to find greener products.
