Check out these top green residential projects from across the U.S., which demonstrate that green living is no longer just for the wealthy few.


1 – Postgreen’s 100K House in South Philly sets the mark for in-city affordability

Postgreen, a sustainable building and design company, wanted to address a demographic that was not being served in Philadelphia: Urban dwellers who want to live in a green property, but do not want to move to the suburbs or spend the money, typically $500,000 and up, for most builder’s green creations.

The Whirlpool WFW94HE, WFW95HE and WFW97HE and Maytag’s MHW7000 and MHW6000 (model numbers will vary slightly based on retailer) are tightly under wraps until October. If you can’t wait that long, we’ve rounded up some of the other most energy-efficient washing machines on the Energy Star list, as well as top-rated ones from Consumer Reports.
