Water, Waste, Energy and Green Building

The Center for ReSource Conservation has been around for over 30 years (in one form or another) educating people about energy technology. It has only been during the last 5 years they have branched out and begun working within four realms: Water, Waste, Energy, and Green Building.

In May of 2007 they released an article to the press titled, “Spring greening: 50 simple ways to be environmentally responsible.” The article includes tips such as, “Water before 10 a.m. and after 6 p.m. to prevent evaporation.” Helpful green tips like that are important to share because a lot of people honestly just don’t know why or what to do to “be green.”

They are also responsible for installing solar hot water systems in low income housing units around Boulder, Colorado, their home base. On Sunday, September 30, 2007, they will be presenting The Boulder Tour of Solar and Green Built Homes. If you can make it out there you should check it out to “see first-hand that solar and green built homes are comfortable, practical, reliable, and affordable.” It’s all part of Solar Week in Boulder.
