A "green community" or a "green home" is one that's designed to reduce human impact on the environment. This might mean a home equipped with Energy Star appliances or designed with an innovative floorplan. It might mean technological advancements, like smart thermostats, or construction with recyclable materials. It might even mean the usage of sustainable energy sources, like solar or wind power. But living in a green home comes with plenty of benefits (like reduced utility bills!), even if you're not concerned with your carbon footprint. If you've been wondering about green living (or its benefits), you might want to learn a bit more about the benefits of living in a green home.
