NEW YORK -- Bob Vila, the dean of green home renovation and repair advice, is proud to be a featured subject matter expert and partner in the launch of www.GreenTowns.com, a new online network that connects and celebrates innovative green sustainability efforts and the people pioneering them in thousands of towns and cities across the United States.
Bob Vila has been a longtime supporter of green home building technology and initiatives, and is a pioneer in helping share green ideas and promoting new sustainable home renovation and repair products and technologies. Through his leading home renovation and repair website, www.BobVila.com, Bob shows you how to make small changes at home that will have a big impact on helping the environment, and dispels myths that building green has to mean building ugly or spending extravagantly. In his web-exclusive videos "Bob Vila Building Green," Bob showcases groundbreaking green technologies, from a green Habitat for Humanity building to an earth-bermed house built into the side of a hill.
A generation of home renovation enthusiasts has grown up and learned about home improvement with Bob over the last 30 years, and with this new partnership he looks forward to reconnecting with that audience as well as a new crop of home renovation fans that believe in green technologies and ideas as a cornerstone of the future of home building and renovation.
"Every town has its own unique challenges to finding green solutions. We want to help!" said Bob Vila, CEO of www.BobVila.com. "The audience of BobVila.com is interested in sustainable building and green efforts, and we hope that our partnership with www.GreenTowns.com will connect them with specialists and local citizens across the United States who share the same green commitment."
The partnership between www.BobVila.com and GreenTowns.com will help share the BobVila.com message, support and expertise of green initiatives with the GreenTowns audience, while highlighting the GreenTowns network to Bob Vila's many followers on twitter and other venues. Building on the technology and communication tools that power 15,000 community websites at AmericanTowns.com, GreenTowns.com will also offer green community pages for each town in a feature called "How Green Is Your Town." Bob will author original green home renovation and repair content for www.AmericanTowns.com and www.GreenTowns.com and green articles and video from the vast BobVila.com library will be featured on the two sites, helping bring Bob's unique green pedigree and expertise to a new audience.
