Building or Renovating?

I thought SEE-Changers might enjoy this great article by Kevin McCloud of Grand Designs.  It contains a fascinating list of sustainable building products, design options and alternative homewares (like fabric made from stinging nettles and old wool) to make your home more environmentally friendly.

And another brilliant article here with Kevin’s ideas for a sustainable housing development that also address food production, health transport options and accessibility for the economically disadvantaged.
