I am all for eco-inspired living, as long as I do not have to get involved myself. I know that we are supposed to save the world and make it a better place for our kids and their kinds, but it is really boring. I will stretch if I must and will sort my rubbish into different bins, but that is about as far as I will go. Oh, and one of those hybrid-cars would be OK too.
This, I think it so take the whole eco-housing a bit too far though. Fine, buying second hand furniture etc, but using a stub as a table and a paper bag as a lamp shade, hmm, not for me.
