Kermit may have said it isn't easy being green, but nowadays green is not only easy, it's all the rage. While this concept is still new to many of us, Antique and Vintage Woods of America founder Dale Mitchell built his first environmentally friendly home over 25 years ago. Having grown up during the Great Depression, he learned early on the value of recycling. The company salvages wood from countless sources - old barns, mills, homes, and even bowling alleys - and gives it new life, from flooring to paneling to cabinets. Notable projects include antique oak floors for Richard Gere's home and hand-hewn beams for Robert DeNiro's compound, both in New York.
