Elemental Green is a digital media company with a mission to make green home building and renovation the status quo. There’s no reason not to and every reason to make it the norm. (Did you know buildings account for 70% of electricity use and 40% of CO2 emissions in the US?) Plus, green building is exploding! New products and technologies are entering the market all the time and they are more accessible and affordable than ever before.
Whether you’re building from scratch or making some minor renovations, we’re here to help. Browse for the perfect products, get inspired from other people’s projects, and learn why and how sustainable solutions are best for your home. Whatever you’re searching for, spend some time looking around the site. We can almost guarantee you’ll find something you never knew existed for your dream green home!
Here’s what you’ll find on Elemental Green:
Green homes come in all shapes and sizes and we show them off in all of their green glory — LEED homes, passive homes, net-zero homes, Living Building Challenge homes, tiny homes, prefabs, shipping container homes, eco-apartments, lofts, condos and more!
The market for green building and renovation materials and design concepts is exploding, but new innovations often go relatively unnoticed by the increasing population of people who would be interested in using them. That ends here. We intend on making this your one-stop shop for exploring possibilities and finding everything you need.
Going green is a journey and a constant learning curve. We know from experience that sometimes the information is overwhelming and other times it’s so wonky it’ll put you to sleep. Our goal is to translate, demystify, and hopefully even delight.
One more thing – this site isn’t just about us “talking” and you “listening,” we want to hear from you. Please share your projects, experiences, favorite products, and related expertise for others to learn from and be inspired by. Click here to learn more.
