Green Remodeling Idea Book
Region promotes "green" remodeling
Several communities in the Kansas City region have joined together to form the Regional Energy Efficiency Conservation Strategy initiative, with the sole purpose of combining efforts and sharing ideas for energy efficiency throughout the region.
Now in its third edition, the Green Remodeling Idea Book, originally published by the First Suburbs Coalition, is part of that mission. This book is intended to help area residents make cost-effective remodeling decisions to conserve energy and other resources.
Remodeling itself is a green practice. It reuses older residences rather than building new, and it allows homeowners to stay in the homes and neighborhoods they love, while still giving them the modern conveniences of a new home.
This book provides practical ideas to make any remodeling project a green project — from a fresh coat of paint to a brand new room addition. Green remodeling is better for you, your family, your community and the planet — and you may be surprised to find it can save money, too.
Limited quantities of the book are available through many city offices and this PDF version is available online.
