Post What is a "Living Building"?

A "Living Building" is next in the evolution of sustainable building design. These are buildings which are creating enough energy to power all of the systems within them. They are processing wastewater for reuse in the toilets. A home or business can be built to create enough energy to meet its demand without waste. We can pressure our local government to create building codes that will ensure our homes and businesses are not supporting the import of foreign oil, pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions. Write your local government, start a petition, or get out in your community to educate others about the benefits of green building and sustainable design.
