Eco-Home Tour: October is Energy Awareness Month


October is National Energy Awareness Month, making it the
perfect time to learn how to make your house as energy efficient as possible
before the cooler months to come. The
Eco-Home™ Network can help you take the first steps. To raise your energy
awareness and reduce your energy bills, too, sign up for one of our two
Eco-Home Tours this month: Sunday, October 4th or Sunday, October 18th
from 4:00 P.M. to 6:30 P.M.

Our experienced tour guides will explain all the products,
systems and procedures that make Eco-Home energy efficient and water conserving;
and answer your questions about integrating these systems into your own home
and yard. You’ll learn about solar
energy, saving money on heating bills with insulation and weather stripping and
protecting your health with non-toxic/biodegradable cleaning products. The tour
includes the Eco-Home, itself, and the Eco-Home xeriscape and organic orchard
and food garden.

The tour is conducted by the Eco-Home Network, a non-profit
organization dedicated to educating the public on how to make lifestyle choices
that protect the environment and improve quality of life. The Eco-Home is
located in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles. Call 323-662-5207 for
reservation and directions. Requested donation for the tour is $10 per
person. Please make your reservations by
the Friday before the tour.
