Sustainable Living: Hope for a Better (and Smaller) Future

When it comes to planning and developing sustainable solutions for living, there are many views, philosophies, and perspectives on implementation. The vision we hope to explore and expand upon is one of interrelated self-sustaining communities that support one another but operate independently. These diverse cooperative communities are able to establish their own unique approaches to living while benefiting from the value of collective efforts. We believe that one of the key factors to successful sustainable living is the use of smaller homes, such as those designed by Tumbleweed Houses. Smaller homes use less resources to build, have a lower cost of ownership over time for repairs and utilities, they use less land, and they foster simple living. We would like to help develop sustainable communities using these little homes. For more information, please see the section on our feedback form under Sustainable Living Communities.
