A: “Green” design is kind of an overused, ambiguous term, I think. Don’t get me wrong - I’m all for using “green” materials and ecologically friendly building practices. But I worry that the term “green” is just a trend and is used way too heavily as a marketing tool. I recently read an article in a kitchen and bath publication that was entitled “Sustainable Trends”. Isn’t this a bit of an oxymoron? To be sustainable means an entirely different thing than being trendy.

Anyone else want to share their thoughts? Is “green” an overused marketing term...or the future of design? Or is it both?
