Viridescent is an adjective word meaning green or becoming green.

A carbon footprint is the negative impact of people in the environment through the everyday activities and behavior. Buildings account for high percentage of carbon dioxide emissions. A building's carbon footprint is the amount of Carbon dioxide it produces during its operations and activities.

Everyone has heard of the environmental challenges locally and globally. This might seem impossible to solve but every little step to mitigation can make a difference. Every profession has something to contribute for the good of the environment. It is a great place to start with the work field that we are about to take. As aspiring Interior Designers, designing a built environment while reducing carbon footprint have cost benefits and revenue opportunities especially because each booth works on a commercial type of Interiors like hotels, schools, offices, aviation, hospital, child care facility, and restaurants.
