As stated last week, I want to try to provide some interesting green links for interested readers each week. Here are this weeks:
1. Conservation International. Although their webpage doesn’t seem like much, this NGO works with smaller communities to convince them of the dramatic economic and life-impacting affects of protecting their natural resources. The project I heard about encouraged local villages to maintain forests in order to provide some habit for the remaining wild Orangutans to have a place to live.
2. Using alternative building materials is something every home builder can do to minimize CO2 emmisions. Did you know that the production of concrete produces 30% of the USA CO2 emissions. Here is one company that not only provides an alternative to concrete, but makes absolutely stunning homes. Best of all, they are Canadian!
