The extremely high level of ecofriendly homes  that are coming out of Asia, Europe and the West is truly impressive.  Use of recycled and repurposed materials is extremely way to lower ones carbon foot print. Solar, geo thermal and high efficiency appliances and low e glass are allowing home owners to consume less and less fossil fuels. Renewable energy is the wave of the future. There should be more government incentives to ignite a movement in America to conserve more - we are beaten only by Dubai in consumption per capita.
