The exhibit will showcase a wide spectrum of environmentally appropriate products and options and provide homeowners with real solutions for contemporary green living.
“Sustainable living is about taking personal responsibility,” says Green Builder® Media CEO Sara Gutterman. “Through the VISION House in INNOVENTIONS, we will illustrate that we can all provide our families with necessities like sustenance, and shelter, as well as comfort and convenience, while simultaneously preserving and protecting the environment.”
