Why Are We Green?

No matter how you look at it, the concept of green is becoming more and more important.

Consider the recent backlash against the Keystone pipeline, or the uproar over Canada pulling out of Kyoto. On any given day, a glance at the Science section of Google News will likely reveal at least a couple of stories dealing with green technology and climate change.

To be sure, international treaties and technologies tackling climate serve lofty and extremely important goals. Yet there’s more than one reason why one should go green.

We at Mason Homes have had our Green for Life philosophy for a long time now. Designed to ensure comfort and happiness for your family, our program ensures you take care of the environment as well.

A green lifestyle should be a happy lifestyle.

How do we strike this balance? By emphasizing green features that benefit you first and foremost. For example, our green neighbourhoods, featuring ample parks and plenty of nearby communities, are not just beautiful and relaxing — they also help you cut down on car usage, which protects the environment and saves you gas.

Moreover, our Energy Star qualified homes (which come standard in every Mason Homes community), allow you to save money spent on heating costs while using around 30% less energy — a win-win for both the planet and your pocket.

I could go on, but my point isn’t (just) to promote Mason Homes. Rather, I’d like to highlight my longstanding belief that for green practices to succeed, they should do their best to enhance your life in a near immediate way, one that brings about noticeable improvements and also helps you save money if possible.

Politicians and scientists will take a long time to introduce major changes. Let’s not wait for them to improve our world and our lives.

This, I find, is the best way to recruit people to the green philosophy.
