We are part of the environment. Our health comes first. This includes mental health. Food, fitness, and fun are healthy components of an Eco-Friendly lifestyle.
Nonrenewable and precious resources we use leave footprints in our environment. They are reduced by electricity and water conservation. Construction practices enable a lower footprint. They may contain more sustainable materials and methods as well.
Electricity generation releases Carbon into our atmosphere and uses a lot of water. 75% of it around the world comes from burning fossil fuels. This emits Carbon Dioxide. A green house gas that is one cause of global warming.
Conservation lowers our Carbon Footprint. Moving and storing electricity consumes a vast amount of water. Reducing electricity use saves water and the Ozone layer.
There is a limited supply of potable, fresh, water. All of it is classified by colors for awareness. Blue, Green, and Gray water designations allow us to manage its use more efficiently. This resource is hard to replenish.
The United States Green Building Council (USGBC) has construction standards for sustainability certifications of commercial and residential property. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is the ranking system. Home improvement, remodel, and new projects help meet these standards.
