With cities all over the world making changes to go green, much can be learned and valued from the turf-covered homes in Norway. These homes were made in an effort to live in complete harmony with nature as opposed to conquering it.
Because the turf-covered homes' main element was birch bark (a type of wood that is strong, water resistant, easy to strip off a tree and abundant throughout the country), the rooftops themselves were quite durable and extremely eco-friendly. Individuals within the Norwegian area still to this day live in turf-covered homes. Now that’s being eco-friendly.
