As someone who took out part of the front yard of two of my previous homes and turned them into a wildflower gardens, I have been thinking about the environment and green living for awhile now. As I try and wait patiently, okay I’m actually fidgeting, for a freelance writer from the Washington Post to finish her article on my Earth Sheltered Home listing for an upcoming edition of the Saturday Real Estate section, I have continued to look around the area for information on other green buildings.
I came across an article in the Washington Post that caught my attention about a bank in the local community of Bristow in Prince William County that has been certified by the US Green Building Council. Cool green money, green bank.
“With an abundance of natural lighting, carpet made from recycled material and wheatboard cabinets, PNC Bank opened its newest branch in Bristow last week, making it the latest building in Prince William County to be certified by the U.S. Green Building Council”….read the rest of the article here:
One of the things that struck me about this article is the fact that PNC Bank has a national effort underway to build more green banks. One more small step for our environment. YEA!
