Doors open to a sustainable lifestyle

Tuesday, 13 May, 2008

As part of the 7th annual Sustainable House Day, homes across the country will open so others can learn and experience the benefits of all aspects of sustainable living.

“Over the 7 years Sustainable House Day has been showing people the benefits of energy efficiency in their homes, we have seen a dramatic increase in interest. People now realise they need to reduce their energy, water and waste needs in their home but are confused on where to start," event organiser Judy Celmins said.

"That’s where Sustainable House Day can help. There is nothing better than talking to people who have already done it. You can learn the good, and the bad, from the home owner’s personal experience and talk to architects. And once you have experienced living in a home that is cool in summer, without airconditioning, and warm in winter with little or no heating, it’s hard not to get excited.”

You can find an open house in your area by logging onto from August.
