Whatever your motivation for going green at home, there are many resources that can help to motivate and inspire you.

Tools that I would recommend for quickly calculating your current environmental footprint, or the resource use of your home include:

or for those in the U.S. try Low Impact Living 

These calculators give a quick overview of your current environmental impact and can provide ideas of where you could make some improvements and potentially save money on your utility bills at the same time!

Other resources for ideas on going green at home include:

  •  Virtual Green Home provides a 3-D model of a green home and its’ components
  • Make Your Home Green another 3-D home that also gives a calculation on the estimated greenhouse gas savings of individual features.

And of course there are always ideas from yours truly, see 5 easy being green tips for home.
