Green myths debunked!

Ready to take a step toward green? It's easier than you might think. 

There are a lot of misconceptions today about the time and money it takes to implement green home features and sustainable lifestyle practices. As a Realtor with added education in "Green", I'd like to help set the record straight.

Myth: Going green will cost an arm and a leg.
WRONG! There are a variety of cost-effective ways to green your home and lifestyle that can actually SAVE you money. Discover this and many other reasons why to go green.

Myth: To have a green building, you need to be LEED* certified. 
WRONG! LEED is setting a standard for existing and new green homes and buildings. You can implement green products and practices into your home or office that reduce energy consumption, save money and save the environment without being LEED rated or certified.

Myth: One person can't make a difference.
WRONG! I believe that every step towards green is a step in the right direction. Whether you change one habit or your entire way of living, your actions can reduce your carbon footprintand make a world of difference in the long run.
