We’re currently on a broadcast break and will be back with new episodes on March 20. So as we prepare for the stories of the 3rd season, we want to find out what stories, recipes, and ideas you’d like to see on Green Living. Just comment on this post and we’ll see what we can do!
Here’s another sustainable home that may inspire your design senses. This home is in Queensland, Australia, near the Great Barrier Reef. It uses natural oiled timers and other low-finished materials. Like most green designs, it incorporates indoor spaces with the natural outdoor environment. It also was rainwater tanks, solar hot water & electrical panels and a passive energy efficient design.

Here’s an interesting home project that you can do with your kids:
1. Put shredded white paper in a blender & add water. You can actually use any paper; but note that the shade of the recycled paper determines the color of the new sheet you’re making.
2. Add 2 tsbs of cornstarch & blend.
3. Get a frame and put some pulp in it. If you don’t have a frame, you can lay out some pulp on newspaper and form it in the shape & size you want.
4. Lay it out on paper sponge excess and dry.
If you’re interested, there are paper making kits (i.e., the frame above) available at Pepemelroti stores.
