Sustainibility No.2

In class we have been talking about sustainibility and how you can help the world by reducing bad things you do. We have to design an eco-friendly house and explain the adaptations of it, I think.

An eco house is built in a way that reduces energy consumption and waste. An eco house reduces the buildings bad impact on human health and the environment, through better design, construction, siting and maintenance.

An eco house is a combination of sustainable design, sustainable development and sustainable living. Studies have shown that buildings are the most damaging polluters on the planet, consuming over half of all the energy used in developed countries and making over half of all the climate-changing greenhouse gases.

A good eco house should give the owner the a bit of both by providing less of an impact on the environment along with a healthier place to live and lower ongoing running costs.

Here a link to help you start off your friendly living!
