(Toronto ON – Friday, November 13th) Our Green Home highlights the importance of making environmentally responsible choices and changes in our homes. Featuring the home building and renovation innovations of the Archetype Sustainable Home at the Kortright Centre, this edition provides readers with information about how best to incorporate sustainable principles into their home improvements. Other editorial highlights include the newly introduced Ontario Feed-in Tariff and what it means to homeowners, and a Green Grocery Guide to help consumers make more educated choices at the grocery store.
The Fall/Winter edition of Our Green Home introduced a new mascot, “Susty” the Sustainability Squirrel. As an embodiment of sustainability, Susty was created to help put a friendly face on the green home improvement landscape to stimulate engagement and overcome apprehension about the potentially daunting technical and engineering nature of home technology choices.
