This June, we’re observing Environmental Awareness Month. Environmental Awareness is understanding the fragility of our environment and the importance of its protection. Livability absolutely must utilize environmentally friendly practices and promote environmental awareness so that the Earth can sustain our homes, families, and communities- for generations to come.
When it comes to homes, architects, builders, and contractors are focusing more and more on maximizing the sustainability of their projects. BLL encourages prioritizing universal design and aging-in-place, too. Homes that incorporate these considerations are both environmentally sustainable AND multi-generationally sustainable. Check out some of our favorite innovative environmentally friendly designs and contractors.
While you browse, ask yourself if your adaptive needs would be met by these homes or not… is there anything you’d change to meet your adaptive needs or future adaptive needs as you and your family age?
