Free Green Home Seminars!
March 9, 2009
NEXUS, located at 38 Chauncy Street, 7th Floor in Boston, is offering free seminars for homeowners as part of the “Second Saturdays for Homeowners at Nexus” series : “Green Your Home. Green Your Life.”
NEXUS, exhibiting an extensive sample library of green products and materials for residential and commercial products, is a valuable resource for designers, builders, and the general public. In a market where ‘green-washing’ is a growing concern, their diligence in screening the products is refreshing. It is also a big help to be able to see, touch and smell products the products, a big step from reviewing data on a web site or browsing ‘green’ products at a retail store.
The NEXUS Second Saturday program offers an introduction to the free green building resources NEXUS offers and to green building strategies you can implement in your home. The seminars are from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm and are free and open to the public.
