Sustainable Home
Sustainable living and sustainable home building uses less of our world’s precious resources and reduces our impact on the earth.

 

Ecological building and living practices are the blueprint to a vital life and a sustainable future.


These principles have been described in many ways, and are worth repeating:

 

Reduce energy consumption, and use renewable energy sources.

Energy efficient appliances, solar and wind energy, wood for heating.


Choose building materials considering their ecological impact.
Use local materials, and materials produced using minimal embodied energy
 
 

Conserve water and preserve its quality.
Catchment systems for rainwater, grey water for gardening
 
 

 Minimize and reduce waste.
Composting, recycling, re-using
 
 

Be on the land within the earth’s equilibrium, protect the environment.
Living respectfully with our planet
