Building or finding your dream home is a goal for many of us.  For me it is building a renovating the green home of my dreams.  So, it is important to understand not only how to pay for our dream home, yet also how to plan for it.  It is possible for you to have your dream home and make it a green home…with a little planning. 

Dreams and goals for your home start with what you want your home to feel like. Home is more than a place, it is also a feeling.  It’s more than just a place to shelter us.  If you look at the money, time and effort we spend on homes, it is obvious they mean something to us. Owning up to the feelings we want in our home is the first step.  Listen in to get your own dream green home going.

Water Wisdom



Click Here to Play This Episode of The Green Gab Podcast Now!

Because water is a limited resource which we cannot live without, it’s vital we keep learning and remembering to use water wisely. As water is integrated into almost every part of our lives and is used in almost everything we manufacture, water affects us on every level. And because water is so affordable and readily available in this country we must be mindful to use what we need – not what we have
One of the first things we can do to use water wisely is to turn it off when we don’t need it.

Being mindful of turning off the water when brushing our teeth, shaving, lathering up in the shower and putting shampoo in our hair can literally save thousands of gallons of water. Other good practices include rinsing dishes in one basin of water rather than keeping the faucet running and then using the rinse water to water the houseplants.

Running a full load in the dishwasher or waiting to wash a full load of clothes in the washing machine are other simple habits we can all adopt. It’s also important to be aware of the water we use outside our homes. Not letting the hose run when washing our cars is a good habit or better yet using a car wash that recycles the water is even better. Saving water when cultivating a perfect lawn may be achieved by using drip lines, planting native plants, buying rain barrels and planting rain gardens.

When building, or remodeling a home it’s good to think about purchasing low-flow toilets, fixtures and appliances. Choosing a tankless hot water heater and being mindful of where plumbing lines are laid helps everyone get hot water without having to run the faucet. It might be as simple as turning off the water as we rinse our dishes or brush our teeth but whatever it is, each of us can do something, in taking a role in using water wisely.

Harnessing the Wind with Erika Boeing of Accelerate Wind



Click Here to Play This Episode of The Green Gab Podcast Now!

Erika Boeing, systems engineer, entrepreneur, CEO, and co-founder of Accelerate Wind shares her mission of having “as many wind turbines on as many commercial rooftops as possible that are economically viable through the development of several inventions currently in progress.” Current wind turbines tend to be noisy, unsightly and expensive. Rooftop wind also struggles to repay the initial start-up investment, as rooftop wind speeds are too low to extract substantial power.

Erika states Accelerate Wind solves these issues by incorporating the turbines into the architectural design of a new building or a retrofit project by placing them at the edges of the roof where wind is naturally forced to speed up as it travels around the perimeters.  The result is a wind energy solution that operates noiselessly, is less expensive, and is more aesthetically pleasing than many of today’s solutions.

Lisa Masters with Metro East Home and Garden Show



Click Here to Play This Episode of The Green Gab Podcast Now!

This year’s 5th Annual Metro East Home and Garden Show, led by Lisa Masters, was the biggest and best yet! Hosted by the Knight Stewards organization, a parent group of Metro-East Lutheran High School in Edwardsville, Illinois, the free two-day fundraising event hosted over seventy vendors displaying everything needed to update, renovate or improve the inside and outside of a home. Community services such as confidential on-site shredding, pet adoptions, fire safety demonstrations and fingerprinting for children by the Edwardsville Police Department were also available.

Being true to their desire to promote sustainability, the show also provided free electronic recycling and educational speakers such as Farmer Joe who spoke on sustainable backyard gardening. Likewise, Marla’s message encouraged people to “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle,” and reminded folks that only if we can’t reuse or repair do we then recycle. Much applause and thanks to Lisa for her great contribution in spear-heading this amazing sustainable community event and for reminding us that sustainability is about the big picture and the true impact each of us has on the community and the world itself.

The Third “R” – Recycling



Click Here to Play This Episode of The Green Gab Podcast Now!As recycling is the 3rd R in “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle,” the next step is what else can we recycle.  How can we turn “trash to treasure” or in keeping with the “R theme… Refuse to Resource?” Recycling is nothing new, Nature has been doing it all along.

In William McDonough’s book Cradle to Cradle, in nature there is no such thing as waste.  Every output of one process is an input for another.  This is a good model for manufacturing, as well as our consumption of stuff.
