"A new exhibit at Washington, D.C.'s National Building Museum puts green living in the spotlight, providing inspiration for those who dare to dream and a plethora of ways for the rest of us to counteract our wasteful habits.

"'The Green House: New Directions in Sustainable Architecture and Design' aims to show visitors how thoughtful choices -- even small ones -- can help conserve resources, save money, and support healthier lifestyles. With displays that are complemented by lectures, trips to renovation and construction projects, family programs, and a comprehensive website, the exhibit offers something for everyone."

"Ultimately, says coordinating curator Reed Haslach, the exhibit's organizers hope to convince visitors of the benefits -- and ease -- of going green."
