48 Feats of Modern Sustainability

Eco-Friendly Innovations to Better Our World

— May 19, 2009 — Eco
We live in a world where being wasteful is getting less acceptable. Modern living includes finding ways to utilize resources without being wasteful. From clothes and buildings made of natural materials to race cars made of veggies, we can find ways to sync with our surroundings.

Here are 48 eco-friendly articles as an example of people exploiting natural resources while maintaining ecological balance.

Implications - Modern designs have taken on slick, environmentally friendly aesthetics in order to cater to the modern generation. While traditional architecture remains, architects are looking towards contemporary designs that reflect the "green" attitudes society has recently adopted. Not only will consumers have a home that's new, but they'll have one that helps ease their transition into an eco-lifestyle.
