The Paris agreement is coming together much faster than expected as the world’s two biggest polluters join in a sign of acceptance.
US and China, the world's biggest polluters, formally commit to the Paris climate agreement, putting ratification in reach by the end of the year.

My latest candy wrapper bag.
I'm not one for throwing things away. If something can be reused, or repurposed, then chances are I'll find something to make with it. Several months ago, I started saving crisp packets and chocolate wrappers again, along ...

This camper van conversion is one of the most impressive stories we've come across!

http://theownerbuildernetwork.co/recycled-and-repurposed/camper-van-conversion/

Why? Because it's not just about an old van converted into a camper. It's also about a story of a young man who bravely stripped his good but ordinary way of life down to the basics and built the adventurous world he dreamed of living!

Read the story and have a look at its cosy interior by heading over to our site :)

Here's another inspiring earthbag construction for fans of natural homes out there!

http://architecture.ideas2live4.com/2016/06/15/shantikuthi-earthbag-spiral-house/

The Shantikuthi Earthbag Spiral House is called such because its walls were built in a spiral pattern. Its roof also has a spiral garden where visitors can harvest seeds to bring home and plant in their own yard.

Learn more about it and view the slideshow of the building process on our site! :)

The tiny homes trend is booming. It’s proven to be a great way to make housing affordable without the need for a large mortgage.

http://ideas2live4.com/2016/03/14/couple-makes-school-bus-into-mobile-home/

And because most tiny homes are mobile, you can change your view just about any time you want. Got a job offer in another city? Take your tiny home with you!
Andrew and Julie Puckett saw the advantages of tiny home ownership. And they didn’t just get on the bandwagon, they got on the bus by transforming one into their home...

One Building Technique With Many Names

http://architecture.ideas2live4.com/2016/06/23/cordwood-homes/

Have you ever heard of cordwood masonry, cordwood construction, stackwall, log-end, stovewood or stackwood?

Whilst labour intensive, the construction method is simple and can be inexpensive and environmentally friendly.

You’re probably like most people… you throw away the eggshells when cooking? Or maybe, like us, you throw them in with the compost.

http://theownerbuildernetwork.co/landscaping-and-gardens/gardening-ideas/surprising-uses-for-eggshells-you-should-know/

You’ll never do it again after you’ve seen these surprising uses for those eggshells...

Hmmm — now we can’t stop thinking about all those eggshells we’ve thrown out in the past!
