Green Building

In this day and age, everyone is a Green Builder...but are they?  We consider the majority of builders and architects to be "Green Veneer" at best.  True Green building needs to consider site, materials, use, durability, energy (incl. embodied), waste and cradle-to-grave considerations.  A bamboo floor and a solar panel doth not a Green building make.
