• What does it mean to be sustainable?

    The goal of sustainability is to not consume or damage our planets natural resources. Living sustainable means to use as little resources as possible, and strive to better the environment instead of harming it. At the sustainability theme house, our goal is to show the community that its not only possible to live a sustainable life style, but it's fun too!

    How do we live sustainable?

    Our sustainability house was specially designed to save electricity, water, and reduce waste. There are many built in features Having an efficient house is only half the battle. It's up to us to change how we live, and how use our planets resources if we truly want live sustainable and to better our environment. We do many things both individually and as a team to live green.
