New PBS green building show beginning June 5

Building Green TV announced Tuesday that its new weekly television series, called Building Green, about creating beautiful homes and buildings in harmony with the environment, is set to air on PBS affiliate stations starting June 5.

“Many people don’t realize that buildings cause more CO2 emissions than cars,” said show host Kevin Contreras. “In fact, buildings and their construction account for nearly half of all greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumed in this country each year. By providing people access to information about how they can build greener, I believe we can better sustain our planet — one home at a time.”
