This Week on THE GREEN

BIG IDEAS FOR A SMALL PLANET: BUILD

Building is an important part of the green movement. Some things can be rebuilt into eco-friendly places while others have to be made from scratch in order to obtain LEED certification. Recently, Kodak Film has demolished old factories and have started building new, hi-tech factories in their place.

This week’s episode of BIG IDEAS includes some interesting personalities and projects that focus around building homes and public buildings.

Here is a short clip that will give you a taste for some of this week’s events.
