Sustainability is part of life. A necessary feature of all decision making. Well, at least, it should be, if we want to continue to enjoy life on this planet.
Whether we are deciding economic or commercial issues, aesthetic or environmental matters, or human health. All of these areas of life, to name a few, require ongoing future-proofing.
Passive House Standard is sustainable
Passive House standard buildings, and the Superpod® building system, cut to the chase. We want to improve enjoyment of life and have better health outcomes. Clean filtered air helps. And stable temperatures with no drafts is a great solution to improve comfort.
We also want to reduce our energy demand. Nothing does this quite like the Passive House Standard. Reducing our carbon footprint will help our future.
Choices about building design and components should improve our lives and reduce energy consumption at the same time.
And what we decide to do about food, food production, and consumption are also important. Such decisions also impact on the sustainability of the lives we lead, and the lives of those to come.
The other day we went to the Diggers Club Garden in Dromana, and ate roast vegetables they had grown.
Sustainable food is generally locally produced, organic, natural, and delicious! And if you think about it just a little, cooking at home is fun!
We have been researching sustainable garden and food production for some of our upcoming projects.
Sustainability is multi-faceted
That’s because we believe that sustainability is multi-faceted. We need to look at it in a comprehensive way, not just by reference to one element, or another, in a vacuum. It’s all about enjoying life, making life better, and generating lean and effective systems and practices.
This way, future generations can do the same.
Just the kind of thing we love.
