Be inspired by a SuperHome this Spring

Be inspired by a SuperHome this Spring

Spring is just around the corner and we've got something to really inspire you: the SuperHomes Spring Opening 2011. These are houses that have undergone an energy makeover to slash their carbon emission by at least 60%; and the brave householders also open their doors to members of the public a few times a year. This year, you can visit a SuperHome between Sunday 27th March and Sunday April 3rd. Find a SuperHome near you now and book a slot to visit the home through the SuperHomes website: http://www.greatbritishrefurb.co.uk/superhomes.

What wood you choose?

Making your house sustainable also means that all material used is from a sustainable source. All the timber and wood products we buy – from furniture to flooring to wallpaper – started life in a forest somewhere. Trees were cut down, processed and sold to you as a door, a kitchen worktop or garden decking. But not all wood comes from well-managed forests. So how can you be sure you’re choosing the right wood – wood that’s sustainably produced without causing harm to people or wildlife? A new report and short film from WWF's 'What Wood You Choose?' campaign team shows you why, and how, to choose responsibly-sourced timber products.

Don't miss Ecobuild 1-3 March: the great green home building show

Next week the Great British Refurb Campaign partners and sponsors are all busy at Ecobuild; the world’s biggest event for sustainable design, construction and the built environment and the UK’s largest construction event of any kind. The show is bigger and better than last year, with a new venue: ExCel London and it takes place from 1 - 3 March. The event is completely free to attend – register for your ticket here: http://www.ecobuild.co.uk/. The GBR campaign partners, the UK Green Building Council and WWF, along with campaign sponsors Gentoo Group and Knauf Insulation are all speaking on various platforms about the importance of energy efficiency in homes and wider green building issues.
