From Attractions Magazine:
A new home tour has opened in Innoventions East at Epcot. The Vision House, presented by Green Builder Media, highlights the “green” home, and shows off many now available products that will help save energy and protect the enviroment.
The purpose of the Vision House, which opened on Earth Day 2012, is to present green living ideas in a fun and informative manner. The exhibit will showcase a wide spectrum of environmentally appropriate products and options and provide homeowners with real solutions for contemporary green living.
“Sustainable living is about taking personal responsibility,” says Green Builder Media CEO Sara Gutterman. “Through the Vision House in Innoventions, we will illustrate that we can all provide our families with necessities like sustenance, and shelter, as well as comfort and convenience, while simultaneously preserving and protecting the environment.”
As guests take a guided tour of the house, they will explore the major themes of green building, such as whole-home automation; energy generation and efficiency; water conservation; indoor environment quality; and high-performance materials and durability. Along the way, they will encounter many intelligent products and advanced technologies.
The attraction is a part of Green Builder Media’s Vision House Series. These actual residences around the country are designed to demonstrate that a successful building is more than simple shelter — it is an interactive set of systems that combine to create a truly green living environment for inhabitants.
