White House Going Green

Federal buildings across DC are making changes to go greener for 2010.

In October, President Obama signed legislation to reduce the carbon footprint created by the White House complex and federal government buildings. Recently, measures have been taken to see this goal become a reality, including increasing energy efficiency, conserving water usage, and cutting extraneous waste. The White House complex has incorporated new efficient heating and cooling systems, along with organic paint, low-flow toilets, and lights that turn off by themselves. The government is taking more steps to lessen impact, such as reducing waste in more than 500,000 federal government buildings across the country.
