One Response to “Green Building and Sustainable Development”

  1. I thought listeners might be interested in the great story from Grist about a Texan who takes sustainable building to its ultimate extreme!

    “Texas home builder Dan Phillips transforms trash into artful treasures, creating intricate floor mosaics with wood scraps, kitchen counters from ivory-colored bones, and roofs out of license plates.

    The fantastical houses which spring from his imagination are made almost entirely with materials which would otherwise have ended up in a garbage dump.”
