My friend Jen, set me a link to a new site focused on green building initiatives for the kitchen and bath industry.
K+BB Green – a kitchen and bath business focused site designed to inform and educate both designers, architects and builders but also the residential consumer.
In addition to K+BB Green, I’m going to be keeping my eye on the REGREEN program. This initiative is a collaboration between ASID (American Society of Interior Designers) and the USGBC (United States Green Building Council).
REGREEN, is a partnership between the ASID and USGBC to develop, “best practice guidelines and targeted educational resources for sustainable residential remodeling projects. This program will increase understanding of sustainable renovation project practices and benefits among homeowners, residents, design professionals, product suppliers and service providers to build both demand and industry capacity.”
REGREEN will issue its guidelines and manual in March 2008. Visit their website to learn more about where the initiative and its impact on residential design.
