Green Building

We are in the planning stage of a new home and would like it to be as environmentally friendly as possible. It seems to be good timing, as more companies and builders are orienting this way. We would like to learn about solar, straw bale, geothermal, formaldehyde-free, etc. technology and whatever else is feasible and gaining in popularity. The field seems to be expanding more all the time, and if someone can direct us to a good source of information, would appreciate it.
