LEED Certification - Check it out!

I'm happy to say I've been doing a lot more reading on what big businesses and people are doing to help out the environment. You may have already heard about this one, but LEED Certification serves to encourage builders to construct more environmentally-sound structures. I suggest taking a look to learn more! It's great to know that big things are happening as we try and make our small changes.
