Hmm, it *really* depends on the site/climate but, the things I can think of are a cob built house first and foremost, LEED Certification, Solar, rooftop systern, rain barrels, composting toilet, gardens-growing your own veggies/herbs, family cloth/cloth diapers, no VOC paint, bamboo floors, metal framed, window treatments, recycled materials, green roof, regional plants in garden/yard(ie. NOT having the greenest yard or any at all- water conservation), clothes line, car port, permiable pavers, locally made/sourced furniture, green cleaners- sahmpoo(no poo with baking soda/vinegar) dishwashing, etc.
OK, that's all I can think of right now but, I'm sure there is more., "they" are always coming out with more.
