8. My local hardware store doesn’t carry fancy green products. You live in a small town and it takes years for newfangled appliances and materials to reach you. Or you’re a loyal Home Depot or Lowe’s customer and don’t imagine they carry such ‘specialized’ products. Not true. Both major retailers carry Energy Star appliances and many other green building materials. Besides, green remodeling doesn’t even have to include specialty “green” products. You can buy basic insulation or low flow toilets (the government has mandated them since 1995!) just about anywhere that sells building supplies.
