But while it's true that every little bit helps, there are no quick fixes on the road to sustainability. This is especially true in home building in Brockport.

As interest in the environment grows, it’s hard to turn on the television without seeing a story that offers advice on how consumers can go green. But while it’s true that every little bit helps, there are no quick fixes on the road to sustainability. This is especially true in home building.

Loading up your houses with green building products won’t mean much if other (more important) elements of sustainability are ignored. So, if your homes are not thoughtfully designed or do not follow building science principles, no amount of green products will help you or your buyers.

But the right products can help you follow through once you’ve started building green. Assuming you adhere to the important elements of sustainable building, you will want to specify the right items, such as fixtures that save water, materials made with recycled content, and appliances that sip, rather than gulp, energy.

On the following pages are 13 products that will make a difference. Check out items such as soybean-based foam insulation, tankless water heaters that save energy and help provide better indoor air quality, and tiles made from reconstituted leather scraps. The products you choose can make a big difference between seriously green and so-so green.
