Asheville, North Carolina, Eco Community Review- Summer. 2010
Levels of attraction, commitment, and motivation when it comes to sustainable innovation are as unique as each of us is. Poll homebuyers and investors and you are sure to find certain green attributes have more appeal than others. There are about as many shades of green in eco-friendly design, development and building as you see in the early light on an Appalachian mountainside.
For example in the area of green-built homes, indoor air quality (IAQ) may be one person's primary focus, while whole house ventilation or NO-VOC paint may be another's concern. And many people looking to leave a land legacy will devote their attention to eco-savvy development that takes into account site planning, solar orientation and energy use.
And those seeking innovative solutions to energy and cost savings seem to have in common the notion that their grandkids deserve to live in a healthy, non-toxic environment. .
