It’s 2010!

 

Happy New Year all! And thanks for reading my blog. 

As we begin a new year and a new decade, now is a great time to look at everything that has changed since the year 2000, and to look forward with hope and excitement to what we can do in the next decade! 

The past decade has established green building as the future of new home building. There are so many reasons why environmentally-friendly homes and communities are vitally important: from improved health and quality of life on a personal level, to better health on a global level, to significant savings on energy and water bills. This last factor became even more important to families during the recession, as noted in this article, which discusses the recent increased consumer demand for energy-efficiency homes to reap the financial benefits.

More and more people are thinking green, buying green, and seeing green… in their natural communities, and in the bank! I was inspired by this article from the Barrie Examiner, which talks about kids being more eco-conscious. Living green today means that the future will be greener too, as we set an example for our children. It’s exciting to watch the green movement expand and grow, and to see the widespread interest and variety of contributions. 

Here’s to a great year, and an environmentally-friendly one! Mason Homes will be continuing our landmark Green for Life program and looking into exciting new building developments. Check back here for updates. 

Cheers, 

Sean Mason
