10 Pinterest boards every green builder should follow

Published on Written by Posted in Community

There's a reason Pinterest is the fastest growing social media platform of all time, and the third most popular overall after Facebook and Twitter. The big, bright photos (and very little text) in a broad range of categories—from travel to architecture to "geek"—makes it very easy to get hooked. More and more, companies are using Pinterest as a valuable tool to showcase their products and highlight relevant industry news. We've scoured the web for the best green building Pinterest boards that we think you'll find very pinteresting:

  • Green Building. Influential sustainable architects, reading suggestions, green building tips, and the industry's best practices. This extensive board by Nurture Nature Project has it all.
  • Home Energy Savings. This community board, run by E-Conservation Home Savings, aims to help homeowners conserve energy and save money. 
  • LEED Green Buildings. LEED buildings of every certification, from Kentucky to Singapore. Board by Nikole Sariotis.
  • Green Technology that's Amazing. This board is chock full of the most creative and innovate green tech ideas on the market. A quick look around, and you're sure to gain a little hope for the future. Board by Earth Techling.
  • MMN Quotes. "Conservation is a state of harmony between men and land." -Aldo Leopold. Get your daily dose of inspiration by following this board by Mother Nature Network.
  • Green Architecture. Gorgeous, sustainable buildings around the world- from a house nestled into the mountains of Colorado, to a school making a difference in Shey, India. Board by ArchDaily.
  • Sustainable Design. Art made from salvaged wood, vertical home gardens, and a 3D printed wind turbine lamp. This Treehugger board is definitely worth checking out.
