From the ACORN email about the event:

According to the U.S. Green Building Council, buildings account for 65% of electricity consumption, 36% of energy use, 30% of greenhouse gas emission, 30% of raw materials use, 30% of waste output, and 12% of potable water consumption.  Cityspace operates on the premise “that a greener house is a better built, more efficient house.”  While they offer new construction services, renovations and remodels are a primary part of their business.  This is your opportunity to get answers to the questions, “Why– and How– to go Green?”
