Sustainable Materials

sustainableMaterials_icon35A sustainable home is one that supplement’s the environment’s global ecosystem. The material elements within the home such as wood, brick, concrete, steel, various types of insulation materials should be capable of lasting for many years. At the end of their useful life span within the home they should ideally be either recyclable or biodegradable. Wastewater and biological matter should be rendered useful again through recycling or reuse.

Sustainable building materials ideally should be:

  • Recyclable
  • Made from nontoxic substance
  • Long lasting
  • Locally grown or produced
  • Low negative environmental impact during production phase
  • Low negative environmental impact during its lifetime
  • Should have a low carbon footprint
