Student writes her local newspaper with an important message for her town: Green Homes are Good for our Community
As a sixth-grader at Eastern Middle School, I am concerned about the energy being carelessly wasted and the growing pollution around the town. To improve this, I support the modus operandi of "green building" and modifying homes to be more Earth friendly.
Increasing green homes will have remarkably positive effects.
The town's picturesque parks and landscapes are extremely valuable. The streets are lined with scenic houses and even some historical sites. If we don't put a stop to the constant release of fumes and greenhouse gases, the exquisite reputation of this community may collapse dramatically. Installing more energy-efficient and solar-powered homes will secure a prosperous and efficient status. Also, green homes are becoming quite luxurious, and such additions would be a notable avowal for Greenwich.
Standard houses have negative effects on the environment. Air pollution, water pollution, indoor pollution and stormwater runoff are all harmful to the Earth. Eco-friendly homes are designed for creating a healthy indoor air environment and adequate ventilation in a natural way, and use heavy insulation to reduce rising energy usage within the house.
These houses have very efficient appliances and construction.
For instance, there are triple-pane windows, low-energy lighting,
ground-source heat pumps, solar panels and de-chlorinating shower
filters. These elements together guarantee a healthy lifestyle for the
average Greenwich house.ecological
house would be well adapted to the community and very beneficial to the
economy. Those houses specialize in carefully making the best of all
resources and avoiding waste. By switching to this type of houses,
you're helping all parts of the world.
I've lived in Greenwich long enough to appreciate its outstanding reputation. I am certain that expanding the quantity of energy-efficient homes would be extremely advantageous to the economy, households and the dazzling image of Greenwich.
Eco-friendly homes are the way of a cleaner, greener future. So I urge the people of this town to use green building technology when building or renovating their homes.
Thank you for reading my letter.
