Are you looking to renovate your home to make it more environmentally friendly? Be careful of getting greenwashed.
Keeping your skills updated is often key to for keeping a job or getting a new one.
The City of Raleigh has a new program that could help you with that goal if you're in the construction industry: green building training and certification.
The program is free and is funded by the federal government's stimulus program.
The idea is that companies who have workers trained to build green will be able to market themselves in the burgeoning green economy.
