What we're about

Meet people in the Portland, OR, area interested in building a green home or making their homes environmentally friendly. Discuss green construction, remodeling, energy efficiency, air quality and other related issues!

Green building increases the efficiency with which buildings use resources — energy, water, and materials — while reducing building impacts on human health and the environment during the building's lifecycle, through better siting, design, construction, operation, maintenance, and removal.
