The important things to focus on are energy efficiency, indoor air quality and conserving water. Replacing old windows and upgrading your insulation can definitely decrease energy consumption. High-efficiency exhaust fans in the kitchen and bathroom help keep your air clean. Conserve water by installing low-flow toilets and using native plants in your landscaping. Rain barrels are also an easy solution. For more ideas, check out the new REGREEN Guidelines.
