Resources for Creating a Sustainable Home

During our podcast on this topic we mentioned quite a few ideas and resources that may come in handy if you are looking to make your home more sustainable.  Here are a few:


  • weather strip windows
  • heavy curtains longer than the door to avoid drafts – could be a heavy wool blanket
  • cold climate: create some kind of weather protected entrance
  • replace windows with better insulation
  • In hot climate: paint roof white
  • Natural insulation: Wool, old denim, cork, recycled plastic (better not to use plastic)
  • living roof if structure allows the weight
