It seems that everybody is trying to be eco-conscious nowadays. Japanese design firm Bokako also intends to be eco-friendly with its organic ‘Comploo’ house.

Comploo is designed to be heated by organic wastes that will keep the room warm, thanks to its unique composting system built in the walls. When food wastes are put into the decomposing compartment, the microbial processes generate and circulate the heat inside. The Comploo house also has glass on its roof that captures heat from the sun.
