The earth is quickly getting in dire conditions and while everyone is taking steps to reduce our carbon footprints, is it enough? We’re minimizing fossil fuel usage and we’re recycling. We’ve began using sustainable energy as much as possible, but is there more that can be done?
According to some experts in the field of sustainable design and all things related to sustainability, buildings account for almost half of the energy outflow for the world. Greenhouse gas emissions account for 40% and potable water is another 25%. And when it comes to solid waste generated, developed countries contribute more than 20%. That solid waste includes food waste, un recycled materials, and yard waste.
