“Going Green”, A New Paradigm in Real Estate in North Carolina

Many people think of “Green” as “earth friendly” but in simple terms, “Green” refers to lessening the environmental impact from society. Today in the United States we need to be conscience regarding our Ecological Footprint. You are probably thinking, what is our Ecological Footprint?  It is “How much land and water area a human population requires to produce the resources it consumes and to absorb its wastes under prevailing technology.

The two primary Principles of Green are:

1) practicing resource efficiency and conservation and

2) practicing social responsibility.

The Green Concept for all of us on the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau is to be more conservative with our natural resources  and to focus on recycling of our waste materials. Some examples of this are 1) consumers to recycle products such as newspapers, metal cans, plastics, etc., 2) new construction building and remodeling to use every piece of lumber on the job and only discard scraps of lumber instead of four to six feet lengths of lumber, and 3) conserve our electric power, natural gases, and water to ensure that the needs of future generations are met.
