INHABITAT: Do you utilize green lighting and energy saving measures in your own home? If so, what are some of the products you use and can you share any tips with our readers?
AMANDA: I’m an apartment dweller, but I’m lucky to have a good amount of natural light and a good passive cooling setup, which diminishes our need for electric illumination and air conditioning. We are constantly unplugging appliances that are not in use, we try to be very conscious of our water usage, and we tend to be very judicious with lamp light. Also, I just moved from San Francisco and therefore I have a large collection of sweaters—which means that when it gets cold, I reach for the layers instead of reaching for the heater. I also have a menagerie of pets, who help keep me warm at night, too!
