Do you think we’ll destroy the world before everyone has a chance to turn into an eco-friendly warrior? The only way to stop creating more damage is to do something about it, but where do you start if you want to turn green? Luckily there are tons of fantastic websites scattered around the internet and they’ve been publishing great information for years. Here are some of the bigger ones you might want to take a look at if you’re seriously about becoming more green.

They also take a close look into concepts you’ll not see for a few years, but it’s nice to know about the great innovations people are coming up with every day.

Inhabitat

Then just like some of the other great websites on the list there is a lot of information about green technology. When you combine everything together you’ll come out the other end with a home that won’t harm the planet.

Everything you need

Sometimes all you need is a little inspiration to get started and these websites will give you a great starting point. Don’t feel like you need to change everything about your home in one fell swoop, but start with a few basic things and see where it takes you.
