Fine home experts – Judith Glass and Sheila Sabine – have distinguished themselves by making their own brand of home-staging a marketing specialty.

Basic Principles of Green Design – Definitions

Low-Impact Materials. Non-toxic, sustainably produced or recycled materials which require little energy to process

Energy Efficiency. Manufacturing processes and produce products that require less energy

Quality and Durability. Longer-lasting and better-functioning products will have to be replaced less frequently, reducing the impacts of producing replacements

Design for Reuse and Recycling. Products, processes, and systems designed for performance in a commercial 'afterlife'

Biomimicry. Redesigning industrial systems on biological lines; enabling the constant reuse of materials in continuous closed cycles

Service Substitution. Shifting the mode of consumption from personal ownership of products to provision of services which provide similar functions, e.g., from a private automobile to a car sharing service

Standardization and Modularity. standard, modular parts allow products to be repaired rather than replaced and promote interoperability so that systems can be upgraded incrementally rather than wholly scrapped and replaced
