Taking part in a growing nationwide trend to reduce the environmental impact of home building, Woda Group, Inc., follows the practice of what is known in the industry as building green. Building green involves constructing properties with energy efficiency in mind. Below are some of the most popular products found in green properties:

According to Energy Star, replacing just one light bulb with an Energy Star compact fluorescent light bulb saves enough energy to light 3 million homes for a year. Recycled countertops: Various companies offer countertops constructed from recycled materials. These include attractive countertops made from 85 percent glass, 100 percent of which is recycled. Energy Star appliances: In addition to providing energy guidelines for light bulbs, Energy Star evaluates appliances. Virtually every appliance has an energy- efficient model, which greatly reduces monthly energy costs.
