In his foreword of the book Robert F. Kennedy, Jr talks about the motivation and decision to design and build a eco friendly house.
“Homeowners frequently fail to take advantage of many tax breaks and incentives offered by state and federal governments for building LEED-certified homes and adding green features. People who live in green houses save money by consuming less energy and less water than standard homes. Green homes are more durable than conventional structures and require fewer repairs. Soon, it will cost less to insure a green home than a standard home. Finally, green home resale values are far higher than those of comparable standard homes.”
“Everyone can profit from the green gold rush.And by greening your own crib, you can help our country solve our most urgent national problems – global warming, security, a staggering debt, and a stagnant economy.”
– Robert.R.Kennedy, Jr.
