Re: “Action Plan for Building

"energy used in buildings and homes makes up a whopping 67% of Bend's entire fossil fuel use." This is a shocking number yet I expect it is similar in cities and towns across the US and the world.

That is what led me to found, a user-editable database of 40,000+ green-certified homes and buildings across 100 green certifications such as LEED, Passive House, Living Building Challenge and Zero Energy Ready and ranked by RESNET's Home Energy Rating Score (HERS). Click on a building to view the architects, builders, suppliers and products used to construct these buildings. View where the building ranks in a city/county/state/country based on HERS score or LEED points.

For example, here is the list of homes in Deschutes County (Bend, OR) sorted by HERS.

Re: “The Golden Dumpster: Inside Bend's freegan movement

I would be a little hesitate eating food that was near or in a dumpster. However, if the alternative is to starve than you do what you have to do. If I would have to resort to this, I would rather look through roll off dumpsters in my local area to find things to sell on Ebay and Facebook Market Place and use the money to buy safe food. Just my opinion mind you.
