Resources for Sustainable Living

The art and science of Sustainable Living continues to be studied at the micro and macro level around the world. Because of the serious challenges that face the world today, many governments, organizations, and individuals are searching for ways to create sustainable solutions for living.

Organizations for Sustainable Living

  • Community Solution - "We envision a country where the population is distributed in small communities that are sustainable, diverse and culturally sophisticated."

Homes for Sustainable Living

Small homes are the latest development in sustainable housing. One of the advantages of small homes is that they can be easily moved from one community to another to offer more diversity and variety in surroundings. In this way, your housing investment travels with you. For example, you might live in a college oriented sustainable community and then after graduating, decide to transition to young professionals community or family oriented community.

Iowa City. A loosely affiliated group of people in the Iowa City area are working toward more sustainable living through promoting trails for bike riding and more pedestrian friendly urban development. There is a local grocery store co-op [click here] that promotes organic foods. Many people have expressed an interest in eventually purchasing land as a location for a sustainable community of little homes [click here] within biking distance from Iowa City.
