The water crisis will prompt us not only to rethink our approach to landscaping, but how we treat, use and recycle water inside our homes.
WATER SECURITY IS a growing concern, not just in arid developing nations, but here in the United States. Public awareness is starting to catch up with this reality. According to the EPA, many of the states that have projected population growth increases also have higher per capita water use. This translates into heightened competition for an already limited resource. But the consequences of climate change, including unpredictable and prolonged droughts, are already spurring watering restrictions and higher utility rates.
Fifteen years into it, we can say with confidence that the 21st century is a century of thresholds. Climate change is not just a distant threat; it’s happening now. The digital age is not just upon us; it’s actively transforming our lives. The products and systems we’ve selected for our annual Green Builder Hot 50 reflect this convergence, and show how new technologies are helping us respond to unprecedented challenges.
