Even though this story happened some time ago, I believe it still inspires and shows how the whole community can work together to make a difference.

My name is Zee Kesler and I am building a tiny house! And you can too!
I am in the beginning stages of planning a tiny house building workshop this summer as a 2 part community art project/workshop. The house will be made from entirely salvaged materials with the help of a team(that's you)!  
Upon competition, the house will be used as a "Maker Residency" ie: a sort of all encompassing creative community space offering free workshops to the public in all things DIY.

Gecko Makes It Easy How to reduce your impact, strengthen your community, and enhance your lifestyle. The range of new products available that have a deduced environmental impact continually impresses me. Ever the optimist, I take this as a sign that a real shift is happening in the way humans understand the connections between modern society and the natural systems we intersect. Yet, I do get a bit frustrated that sustainable products are often hard to find in my everyday shopping.

Last summer, OgilvyEarth released Mainstream Green,  a significant study on why mainstream consumers weren’t buying into the green movement.

Mainstream Green noted that the majority of consumers were ‘light green’ and willing to act sustainably, but the incentives simply weren’t motivating.
