A small community in Meadowlands, Canada has recently approved the construction of a 20-acre housing settlement which is meant for baby boomers. Each residence will be constructed to accommodate the needs of older adults and also emphasize green design, according to The Abbotsford Mission Times.

These homes seem to be meant to last, as many boomers have expressed the desire to age in their own homes. Some of the features that are included are wheelchair ramps, wide doors and bedrooms on the main floor.

The entire project is also being built in accordance to LEED requirements for environmentally-friendly homes. This means that 20 percent of the development will be dedicated to open, green space and properties will be designed with geothermal heating systems, as well as plug-ins for electric cars and native landscaping.

"I think [the local community] mission needs to send a message: that we have an opportunity to make a very green development, that we're not afraid to... bring in an appropriate proposal," councilor Mike Scudder told the news provider.

Those who are looking for an affordable, green window treatment may want to invest in bamboo woven wood shades. These shades are constructed from natural bamboo, which means that no pesticides or other chemicals were used in their manufacturing processes.
