Interior design with a conscience | Historic Green

Linda Sorrento, manager of the ReGreen program, said the new guidelines are the first comprehensive national directives for green renovations, as opposed to new construction.

"A few years ago we were talking and we realized that most homeowners aren't building new or doing whole-house Interior design with a conscience renovations," she said.
...
The online manual saves paper, Sorrento said, and contains clickable links to additional resources.
The guidelines are a free public service of the ASID Foundation and the Green Building Council. They were written for professionals to use in their design and remodeling practices, "but we expect the consumer to make use of them as well," she said.
The ReGreen manual explores 10 common renovation projects and the challenges and opportunities each offers for designing with sustainable, Earth-friendly concepts and products. Projects outlined focus on single-space remodels such as kitchens, baths, bedrooms, living rooms, home offices and finished basements.
"What people don't realize is that existing houses can be greened one space at a time," Sorrento said.
...
Sorrento believes the ASID-Green Building Council partnership breaks new ground, not only because it ensures an integrated approach to rehab and interior design, but also because it provides the tools that designers need to best serve their clients.
"The next step for us will be continuing education programs for designers and members of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry. After that, we will need the help of local chapters of ASID and NARI to be able to take the information directly to the public," she said.
Sorrento acknowledges that some approaches discussed in the manual cost more than traditional practices, but she expects that to change quickly.
"One example of how prices have dropped as demand for green products has increased is the paint industry," she said.

Linda Sorrento, manager of the ReGreen program, said the new guidelines are the first comprehensive national directives for green renovations, as opposed to new construction.

"A few years ago we were talking and we realized that most homeowners aren't building new or doing whole-house renovations," she said."Instead, they were renovating piecemeal, maybe one room at a time.There was plenty of information available about building green from scratch, but nothing about remodeling.We realized we needed a best-practices road map to solve that problem."
The ReGreen guidelines, which were scheduled to be unveiled at a news conference Friday, are available online at www.regreenprogram.org.The online manual saves paper, Sorrento said, and contains clickable links to additional resources.
