Gogreen with red Green living is of growing importance for Australians whohave already begun changing their eating habits, electricity consumption and their recycling prowess. Architects and builders recognise that true green- living needs to beembeddedin the house being built and are increasingly incorporating green ideas into residential design and construction. According to the Western Red Cedar Export Association’s CeesdeJager there is no other commonly used building material that requires less energy to produce than timber. In hot water It’s in the friendly bag A simple choice of saying no to plastic bags can have a major impact on the environment. Our grandmothers would never leave the house without their string bag. Emily Hays has created Ecosilk Bags, a durable, recyclable bag that holds up to 14kg. Cost $6.50. Details: www.ecosilkbags.com.au Grass is greener Environmentally friendly Enviro Grass from Amber Tiles comes with an option of varied blade widths, multiple yarn types and multiple colour mix. This different species of man-made grass resembles its natural counterpart but will maintain its lush look in sunshine, full shade and around salt or chlorine pools. It is ideal for high-traffic areas and it can be used with pets. Enviro Grass prices start from $54.95/sq m.

The pump reduces energy consumption by up to 70 per cent.

The perception is that buying and building green is more expensive. However the durability and sustainability of timber ensures that the long- term benefits far outweigh the short-term costs. Western red cedar is farmed using sustainable forestry practices and requires very little on-site energy. ? UNSURPASSED QUALITY ? SERVICE EXCELLENCE ?
