We take a look at the top ten sustainable, off-grid homes from around the world, assessing the design and build of each structure, and learning how we can all be more resourceful, and reduce our impact on the planet.
We visited Elmsbrook, the UK's first eco town, with highly sustainable, passivhaus standard buildings and homes. This is a pioneering development with 400 highly energy efficient homes, creating one of the UK's first truly zero carbon communities.
In this video we visit some of the best examples of living green walls and look at how they benefit us and the planet. These plant walls are becoming increasingly popular in our cities and I expect that all sustainable architecture of the future will have green walls and vertical gardens fully integrated.
