Miami Beach Real Estate Goes Green

This year over 9,000 blogs across the world have registered to write about Climate Change because there is power in numbers and together we can make a difference.

So how does Miami Beach Real Estate relate to Climate Change?  easy, think of green products, how real estate is built, what waste is produced, what appliances are used, the "walkable" factor of your real estate to shopping and business.  No matter the industry, there is something you can do to help our planet.

I have talked about Green Urbanism because it's a topic dear to my heart and somehow it seems like Miami is distant from many of the walkable communities concept because of Urban Sprawl.  I've even talked about Green Designer Finisher for your kitchen, identifying recycled glass counter tops.   My favorite is Miami Green Houses from the past where I identify 3 Green Mid-century architects and their masterpieces.  And lastly, 5 Green conscious moves for your home (anyone can do these).

Take a look at who else is participating in this year's Blog Action Day:
