Earth Day, celebrated annually on April 22nd, is a great opportunity to reflect on our impact on the environment and evaluate the choices we make in our daily lives, including where and how we live. EYA thinks green not only when it comes to how we build, but also how our homeowners will live. This includes building neighborhoods in close-in locations with easy access to transit and open green spaces, recycling construction materials, environmentally-friendly home features and more.
