Sustainable Futures explores the current threats to our world resources and the possible solutions to some of the most urgent and difficult problems facing today's decision-makers. What is a sustainable home, and do you live in one? Why does most of the water we use at home get flushed down the toilet? What colour is the electricity in your home? Sustainable Homes answers these questions and many others. It looks at the impact our homes have on the environment and on our quality of life. Discover what we mean by sustainable living and what you can do to make your home more sustainable.
