71 Sustainable Eco Homes

From Shipping Containers Abodes to Matrix Mansions

— July 26, 2013 — Eco
This collection of eco homes come in a variety of sizes, shapes and materials. There are many small choices people can make to be more environmentally friendly such as using reusable water bottles, taking public transit and turning down the AC, however, these trends show that no matter your station in life, it is also possible to make sustainable choices for your living space. It makes sense, as your house is probably where you spend the most amount of time.

In the future we can expect to see an increasing number of green housing and solar-powered energy options on a residential level.
