Think Condo-Dwellers Can't Have Green Homes? Think Again.

UPDATE: Diana has a review over at Fresh AIRE.

While I'm taking care of What's Up Arlington in Eric's absence, you might notice some of my posts here bear striking similarities to posts from The Green Miles. I assure you this is not a cunning attempt at trickery, rather it is an attempt to keep me from going crazy trying to keep both blogs fresh. Don't think of it as duplication, think of it as recycling! It's practically environmentally friendly! Right? Right.

Anyway, here's a perfect event for all those condo-dwellers lining Wilson Boulevard. Find out how you can reduce the environmental footprint of your condo building!

Greening Your Condo Association
Monday, June 25, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Arlington County Central Library

Have you been looking for ways to make your condominium building more environmentally friendly? Thinking about upgrading your unit? There are many opportunities for condo associations to reduce their impact on the planet, make resident units more livable—and save money!

Come to this workshop and find out what you can do—from reducing energy use and carbon emissions to improving recycling participation, creating eco-friendly landscapes, and retrofitting for solar panels or green roofs. Learn about the benefits of conducting an energy audit. Consider the advantages of starting a community Eco Team. Information on County support programs will be provided.
