This video by Brad Roell, from Karr Bick Kitchen & Bath, discusses the impacts construction and renovation are having on the environment. He states that manufacturers are beginning to realize the negative impact renovations are having and are creating products like low flow toilets and programmable thermostats. He recommends three areas of change to help the environment for kitchen and bath design: 1) energy usage, 2) water usage and 3) materials. He provides examples of off-gassing cabinetry and the reuse of older materials.
