Eco-Friendly Benefits of Using Recycled Materials When Redesigning Your Home

by Joey Ong with Michael Potts                         1000513

We are all well aware of the benefits of utilising recycled goods. From glass bottles to shredded tyres, there are countless examples of how these options will help the environment as well as save our society a great deal of money. However, one of the newest and most interesting trends is to employ these very same materials into the construction and design of our homes. As there are many gardening guides that now feature this method, it is a good idea if we take a look at some examples of the most common materials used and the portions of your home that can be addressed.

Since you’re reading the Green Money Journal it’s likely that you’ve already made the mental shift to sustainability, and if that’s the case, welcome! I believe that shift happens one mind at a time, one company, one technology, one university curriculum, one industry, one community at a time. Furthermore, I have never met a “former environmentalist.” It’s true! Once you understand the truth and complexity of our environmental challenges, you are forever changed. My story demonstrates that. And fortunately for us and for our planet, that collective mental shift seems to be happening quickly, particularly in the important field of green building.


Interior Home Adaptation for Aging-In-Place

by Valerie Garrett                         1000505

Aging-In-Place (A-I-P) means remaining in your home and community as you age while remaining as independent as possible. When seniors are surveyed, they list remaining in their homes as their top priority. A-I-P and sustainable home design share much in common. Low-impact homes conserve water, energy and materials, have healthy air quality, lower carbon emissions, minimize waste, allow for household flexibility and frequently have space-efficient floor plans.

The United States Administration on Aging projects by 2030 the number of seniors 65 and older in the will be almost double what it was in 2000. The fastest growing segment of the population is those 85 and older. Whether building new or adapting an existing dwelling here are some interior upgrades to consider for your own home.
