Make Your Home More Eco-Friendly
Energy-saving changes that will lower your bills and prove that you can live green without sacrificing style or comfort.
After buying a roomy, character-filled duplex four years ago, Jessica Jensen, 36, and her husband, Jason Pelletier, 37, set about making several eco-sensitive improvements and were stunned by the lack of information on sustainable products and strategies for conserving energy and water. Their curiosity soon grew into a calling, and by 2006 they had quit their marketing and consulting jobs and launched Lowimpactliving.com, a site that helps consumers make greener choices.
One might assume that Pelletier and Jensen lead a granola-and-Birkenstocks life, but their home proves that livability and sophistication neednt be compromised in the name of an eco-conscious abode. Read on for a room-by-room look at the changes theyve made thus far.
