The number of ‘sustainable houses’ is growing worldwide. And if you’re interested in making your place more sustainable, the best way to get going is to see one in action.
But where are they? This weekend is Sustainable House Day (which in fact runs Saturday and Sunday) when some of Australia’s best sustainable houses will be open to the public.
Sustainable houses cleverly manage energy, water and waste. Some drawing no electricity from the grid, no water from the mains and generating next to no waste.
There’s not many around. But they’re certainly growing. There’s probably even one near you. So go and check them out.
