So a little back story before we get started. My husband spends his days fighting planet destroying villains at the Union of Concerned Scientists and to say he is eco-friendly is quite the understatement. I, on the other hand, am more a fan of creature comforts that may include but are not limited to blasting the AC the second I feel a wee bit warm, taking taxies everywhere my pocketbook will allow, using paper-towels for any and everything and pretty much being a total electricity whore. But I am slowly, slowly seeing the light at the end of the green tunnel.
In our house, we no longer do paper towels. We don't do shopping bags or zip-locks. We don't do cars. (This I reallllly miss) And we DO do locally grown produce, LOTS and LOTS of recycling and soon composting. (I will definitely let the Huz take care of that worm-filled bin)
Which brings me to today's musing... Shipping Container Houses. This just might be Mr. Lepperd and I's happy medium. They satisfy my design-loving tendencies and they're totally upcycled and environment approved. Plus, the guest house/ office/ mancave possibilities are endless.
