Feature #46, April 27, 2010
I ran across this great site called Inhabitat.com – “is a weblog devoted to the future of design, tracking the innovations in technology, practices and materials that are pushing architecture and home design towards a smarter and more sustainable future.”
What I love about the site is the green ways that architecture, design, technology, fashion and so much
more are all affected by our environment and how we choose to live. Last week was Earth Day, and I showed you ways to get involved in saving the Earth.
Inhabitant has a way that you could win a $250 gift certificate to the Inhabitat shop.
