Indoor Sciences Announces ‘Website of the Month'

May 12, 2008

In honor of Earth Day celebrations, Indoor Sciences (www.indoorsciences.com) is featuring a Website that lists resources for “greening” buildings. The goal is to show how to design buildings that are healthy for the indoor occupants and the outdoor environment.

This month’s featured Website is the Research and Publication page of the U.S. Green Building Council’s Website (www.usgbc.org/DisplayPage.aspx?CMSPageID=77). This page provides links to PDF files and Websites to help visitors “better understand sustainability, energy efficiency, and indoor air quality.”

A common question is, “Why should we spend all the extra money to go green?” This month’s featured site has a section called “Economic Analysis” with links to publications that tackle that issue.
