D.C. Museum Offers Tons of Green Events and Tips



Through November, the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C., is offering an extensive lineup of green programming. In conjunction with the exhibit "The Green House: New Directions in Sustainable Architecture and Design, which will run through June 3, 2007, the roundup includes special interest and technical lectures, family activities and festivals, and Greenovation, a one-day home renovation expo. But what caught our eye is the museum's new online presence for the exhibit. We liked "Go Green," in particular, a sort of all-encompassing how to go green crash course. Here you'll find listings of green terms and ideas, green tips (an expanded version of the ones we mentioned before), green resources, and green ratings systems and certifications. Sections for green shopping (a limited selection), green materials, and innovative green projects are also included. ::The National Building Museum
