Green homes are not only environmentally friendly and money-saving in the long run, they also promote the health of the people who live in them
Vail, CO (PRWEB) March 9, 2010
The Vail Valley Partnership has recently named the town of Vail’s environmental team as the Green Business of the Year, an accolade that’s indicative of the success of the ski town’s environmental programs as well as of the strength of its ongoing commitment towards “going green.” In addition to this news, the town is working towards implementing a green building code with an emphasis on energy-saving which will not only impact the city's future developments, but also Vail residential real estate.
“There has definitely been a growing trend towards living a greener lifestyle here,” says leading Vail luxury home specialist Karen Petersen. A GREEN designated Realtor with a feng shui certification, Petersen specializes in helping her clients live a healthier lifestyle in the right home. “Finding green friendly homes in Vail, Colorado is becoming more viable with increasing options for home buyers who want to lead healthier lifestyles and be responsible stewards of the environment at the same time,” she says.
Green homes are not only environmentally friendly and money-saving in the long run, they also promote the health of the people who live in them. “Your utility bills will be lower, your carbon footprint smaller, and you’ll live more comfortably with improved air quality and decreased mold and mildew growth,” explains Petersen. “Interestingly, designing a space to be green as well as to follow feng shui principles is not at all contradictory, they work hand in hand by complimenting each other," she adds.
