In class we have been set a task. The task is to design an Eco friendly house for on our island...
What is an Eco house / sustainable house?
An Eco house is a kind of house that reduces energy and waste. An Eco house reduces the buildings negative impact on human health and the environment. It has a better design, construction and operation . An Eco house is a made up from a sustainable design, sustainable development and sustainable living. So it is Basically really sustainable. Eco houses are designed and built as part of the larger ecology of the planet! the design and construction of the building are done so they can help us make a natural environment. Studies have shown that buildings are the most damaging polluters on the planet, consuming over half of all the energy used in developed countries and producing over half of all the climate-changing greenhouse gases. Which is not a good thin. A successful Eco house should give the owner the ‘best of both’ by providing less of an impact on the environment along with a healthier place to live and lower costs to live.
So i am really looking forward to this task.
