Filed under Green Living Information

No one would argue that there’s a growing consciousness about the impact that we, as humans, have on the environment.

Canadian builders going green, read the headline, and it got me thinking about the cost of not just building ‘green’, but of converting to green in our existing homes.

In life, we must compromise from time to time. Even the principles that we hold so dear sometimes come under pressure when the situation becomes grave.

The idea of environmental concern has been twisted by many people into something that is practised by people who are prepared to blow away everything that is considered normal and reasonable.
