One of the best ways to go green in a small way in your home, is to adopt a house plant. Not only will it make the ambience fresh, but it will help with your air quality!

Home Alone: Green Celebrity Abodes

Brianne

Don’t want to be left behind when it comes to greening your home?  Protect your house and your family by going eco like these celebs. The star with the greenest home is none other than Johnny Depp. He owns his own island with a self-sustaining habitat that runs solely on solar-hydrogen power. Daryl Hannah parks her bum on a moss covered stone she uses as a couch. Julia Roberts gave her home a $250 million green makeover with recycled and sustainable materials and three roofs full of solar panels. And finally Jason Mraz has a solar-powered avocado farm. Um … yum! Go on and steal some of their ideas.

Who Wouldn’t Want to Live Here?

Neha Shivani

Houston doesn’t get enough credit for being a “Green” city.  Check out the Cordell House, an awesome  home made of 4 Shipping Containers, located just North of downtown. The architect, Christopher Robertson and developers, Numen Development worked together to make a progressive  structure using re-purposed shipping containers purchased from the Port of Houston. The containers cost between $2000 and $5000 each.  The house boasts:  huge windows bringing in natural light,  efficient HVAC systems, tight construction, energy recovery ventilation, non-toxic insulation coating, low-VOC paints/finishes. Even better, the house can be customized later to support a growing family.
