Title: Going Green


1
Going Green
  • Interior Design

2
  • Today city-planners, engineers, builders,
    designers and consumers are looking for ways to
    reduce fuel and water consumption and conserve
    resources in both commercial and residential
    buildings.

3
  • A green home may save as much as 40 in energy
    costs over a traditional home.

4
  • Green homes have less impact on the
    environment by saving energy and reducing wastes.

5
  • Green building (n) is the practice of increasing
    the efficiency with which buildings and their
    sites use energy, water and materials.

6
  • Green design (v) is reducing the impact buildings
    have on human health and the environment through
    better siting, design, construction, energy
    efficiency and operation, maintenance and removal
    through the complete building life cycle.

7
  • Carbon Footprint - a measure of the impact your
    activities have on the environment in terms of
    the amount of green-
  • house
  • gasses
  • produced.

8
  • Building footprint the impact a building has
    upon the land, the amount of land it uses.

9
  • Organic - made solely from plants, plants grown
    without fertilizers, hormones or
  • pesticide.

10
  • Biodegradable things that decompose quickly
    without harmful effects on the environment.

11
  • Sustainability resources that are easily and
    quickly replaced, renewed or grown. A
    sustainable resource meets the current needs
    without effecting
  • future
  • generations.

12
Green Space areas of trees, grasses, etc.
13
  • Urban Heat Island Effect is the over heating of
    a downtown-type area due to the concentration of
    buildings, roads, concrete and lack of green
    space.

14
  • Greenhouse gasses a term given to gasses such
    as carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and methane
    that are suspected of raising the temperature of
    the earth due to their increasing concentration
    in the atmosphere.

15
  • Active solar power the collection and
    utilization of solar energy.

16
  • Passive solar power the use of sunlight as a
    light source in a room or a building.

17
  • Four Rs reduce, reuse, recycle and renew

18
  • Renewable Energy is energy that comes from
    Earths natural forces wind, solar and water.

19
  • Fossil Fuels are fuels created from products
    produced from the Earth that are not renewable.

20
  • Become Energy Efficient by seeking to reduce
    fuel consumption (esp. fossil fuels) and
    resulting carbon emissions. Use energy efficient
    products.

21
  • Energy efficient hotels automatically shut off
    electricity to individual rooms when guest use
    their electronic keys to lock and exit the room.

22
  • Practice Resource Conservation Reduce the use
    of fossil fuels, save water, and use reclaimed or
    recycled materials.

23
  • Buy local Use of local materials (wood, stone,
    etc.), materials brought in from manufacturing
    sources that are not more than 500 miles away.
    Long distance transportation creates polluting
    carbon emissions.

24
  • Improving indoor air quality - Good ventilation
    keeps indoor air cleaner, as does avoiding
    products that off-gas volatile organic
    compounds, (VOCs). A VOC is a potentially
    harmful chemical and an organic compound that
    becomes a gas at room temperature benzene,
    toluene, and xylene. Ingestions of these gases
    can cause mild to severe allergic-type reactions.
    VOC emissions can last anywhere from one week to
    several months.
