According to Scientific American, our homes and offices account for more than one-third of all greenhouse gases caused by human activity (most of it from heating and air-conditioning). Their “How to Green Your Office” in-depth report gives tips and information on new, easy and sometimes quite cheap ways to make our home and work environments more eco-friendly.
Don’t miss their slideshow, “A Magnificent Seven,” of green buildings from around the world.
