We were recently contacted about a hotline service available to homeowners who are looking for information on green home strategies. Read on for details.
Going Green and Saving Resources
Metro, the City of Portland, Multnomah, Washington and Clackamas Counties offer a community resource serving our region: the Regional Green Building Hotline. For over four years, the Hotline has provided practical tips and useful information about green home strategies, including resources and incentives for new and existing commercial and residential projects in the region. The Hotline has answered thousands of questions about ways to reduce your carbon footprint, renewable energy, indoor air quality, salvage, doing more with less, training workshops and more. The free service is a bridge to the information you need to help you begin, wherever you are.
Inquiries are welcomed from homeowners, renters, real estate professionals, non-profits, contractors, students, developers, business owners and design professionals in the tri-county area. It is the Hotline’s intent to inspire callers to incorporate as many sustainable choices, either material or behavioral, into their projects as they would like. The Hotline can also help callers overcome perceived barriers and obstacles around green building.
