How are "eco-friendly" and "condo" mutually exclusive? Even condos without any added eco-friendliness are better in terms of space saved and energy used than houses.

I agree with you [JaimeLeah526]

i say Condos are better than houses because of density. for instance, you can have maybe 200 people in a condo or maybe 2 people in a house on the same lot.

Eco-friendly and Condo don't really go in the same sentence in my mind. Huh? It's good he's practicing what he preaches... a little bit.

Mandy - You SHOULD move in with him. I'd sign that petition. ;) Anyway, I think it's really important to promote green living to everyone, including people who do have money. Having an eco-friendly home may not be super easy for someone without a lot of money, but it's a lot easier for folks who DO have money. I think promoting eco-friendliness and green living to folks with money is a positive thing. That said - I don't think anyone should ever feel bad for not being "green" enough. It takes time and it's a process; sometimes, we just have to take small steps and do things that work with our budgets and our lifestyles and let the progress happen on its own.

We have some "green" condos being built here but they are insanely expensive for the area. I love the view on his new condo, but that's about it. Not that I wouldn't live there...with him.

those prices aren't that high for new york. they're not too high here in vancouver, either. I agree that Leo uses a lot of carbon etc., but would it not make him more of a hypocrite if he bought a regular condo? and...a condo is way more "green" than a stand alone house, especially one with 12 bathrooms like ben affleck and jennifer garner bought. just saying. a LEED platinum rating is nothing to scoff at. that is pretty impressive. to put this into more context: everyday Casa talks about houses that celebrities buy - how many of those are green?! i think we need to start focusing on those that don't care about the environment and won't make an effort despite their multi-million dollar earnings, rather than people like Leo who are doing something. (and no, i'm not trying to justify his "bad" eco habits).

Yeah, it would be easier to be green if we had a ton of cash to burn, huh? Luckily, it doesn't take that. Even if you build a house of your own, you can do it green and on a budget. Check out these green Coveted Cribs (owned by regular folks) for inspiration: A treehouse: A solar home in Colorado: and, A green home handbuilt by a couple! If you have any specific green tips you'd like to cover, definitely message me or leave a comment. :)

This :“Riverhouse is a prime example of how green technology is both accessible and achievable for new residential developments — it is a groundbreaking building.” is hysterical. Really it's achievable and accessible. How many people who aren't millionaire celebrities have access to achieve a 4 million dollar condo? I figure I can heat my house by burning a pile of polar bears and plastic 70s furniture for several years before I've done anywhere near the damage to the planet that Leonardo Dicaprio and his other eco-pr buddies do with their private jet trips or gas-guzzing electricity sucking private movie set trailers. It's not that I don't find there to be a need to live more sustainably, because I do. I'm just tired of hypocritical eco-celebrities trying to make me feel bad because I don't have a bathtub full of cash to just buy someone elses carbon credits rather than, you know actually cutting down on my footprint the way Gore and Leo do.
