Thanks to a “green” home remodel, a local family is in the limelight.

King County featured Issaquah residents David and Leigh Bangs, plus daughters Kayleigh and Laurel, in the premiere episode of “EcoCribz” — a Web series created to highlight residents for using “green” practices and products in home improvements.

Watch the episode and check out the Eco-Cool Remodel Tool here.

“We know remodeling choices can be overwhelming, and ‘EcoCribz’ is about helping people make smart decisions and showing them the best resources to get the job done,” Patti Southard, project manager for the GreenTools Program and “EcoCribz” host, said in a news release.

The program is a nod to “MTV Cribs” — a peek inside the walk-in closets and eight-car garages of the rich and famous.

The inaugural “EcoCribz” episode focus on the steps the Bangs took to improve energy efficiency and air quality, and to provide a more practical use of space.

In addition to highlighting remodeling projects, “EcoCribz” also illustrates how homeowners can use King the Eco-Cool Remodel Tool to find “green” remodeling products, practices and resources.

“We want to show people that green home remodeling creates healthy, comfortable spaces that can save you money, increase your home’s value and help protect the environment,” Southard said. “We also created helpful remodel tips for renters who are looking at paint and interior options such as area rugs and eco-friendly bedding.”

    This is cute! Looks like they made some good decisions in going green – no hemp in sight! Love the idea of saving money on energy bills.
