The U.S. Green Building Council of Alabama held a "Green Seminar" in Montgomery on Friday, August 12.
The group says their goal was to teach people how to save cash while saving the environment.
John Roper, the executive director of USGBC, says those planning to build homes can save money by making their homes green from the beginning. Roper also says it's a great way to cut the cost of utility bills.
