Book Review: Green Your Home

Ready to make environmentally-conscious decisions at home? A new book, Green Your Home, is a guide on how to make the greenest impact at home. The book, published by Keller Williams Realty Inc., includes tips from home buyers and homeowners, sustainability experts and thousands of top real estate professionals.

"Green Your Home is unique because it focuses on the grassroots level where we can make the greenest impact — at home," said Gary Keller, co-founder and chairman of the board for Keller Williams Realty. "Since the housing and building industries account for nearly 40 percent of the world's energy and raw material consumption — we realized that this is a smart place to begin. Greening our homes truly has the ability to change the world."

Green Your Home delves into the tactics to start planting the seeds today for a more sustainable future tomorrow including a focus on:

  • Laying the groundwork for a green adventure
  • Determining green priorities
  • Recharging air quality and interior living spaces
  • Increasing a home's power and performance
  • Creating a sustainable, high-functioning yard

Keller said, "We aren't seeing green in everything we do because of our mindset, habits and lifestyle. Each requires commitment and change. So with Green Your Home, our goal was to offer tips and action items that are realistic for everyone."
