Today, more and more communities across the nation are recognizing the value of adopting environmentally-friendly methods of living. Community–wide energy conservation programs, that can help local governments and citizens manage energy costs, as well as reduce the production of harmful emissions, are quickly emerging. As awareness grows, many more homeowners will turn their efforts toward building energy efficient "green" homes. Architects and builders are looking to green buildings to satisfy their customers' needs. Lumber and building material dealers are committed to meeting this growing demand and stand ready to help their customers build green homes and buildings.
