Imagine a world where everyone had safe and comfortable homes to live in and housing was affordable for all.
Now imagine homes that could easily be 3D-printed in less than a week and made entirely from biodegradable and recyclable materials that deflect heat, pull carbon out of the atmosphere, generate their own energy, and are super cheap to maintain. AND if we need to move them or tear them down and build them again somewhere else, we can do so quickly and efficiently.
Engineers, architects, and scientists are coming up with new materials, products, and processes right now that are bringing us closer to this reality. (Not to mention the traditional centuries-old practices that can still help us today!)
We can create a world where fully self-sufficient environmentally-friendly homes can be built cheaply and easily added to any property or stretch of land. Homelessness can be a thing of the past – and so can unhealthy materials and building processes that use too many carbon-producing resources and cause huge amounts of waste and pollution in our world.
All we need is the shared vision and collective willpower to make it happen!
