Series Description: Building Green is pioneering and entertaining lifestyle television with an environmentally-conscious twist. The series will inspire homeowners as they discover just how easy, cost-effective and healthy it can be to go green, while dispelling the myth that an environmentally-conscious lifestyle means doing without. Each week host Kevin Contreras invites viewers to explore a range of green building techniques and alternatives, from the eye-popping "Green Extreme" to the green mainstream, while showing us that healthy choices don't mean sacrificing beauty and comfort.
