Remodeling? Think Recycling

Natural Built Homes, conveniently located right here in the hood at 40th and Minnehaha, is having their warehouse sale TODAY! from 10 am to 2 pm. They specialize in green and recycled materials. If you have some home repair or remodeling to do, this could save you money and reduce the impact your project has on the environment.

We’ve been a customer of theirs for a few years now, buying our low flow toilet there and low/no VOC paint, as well as smaller items. They often have flooring and tile at the ware house sale.

Wondering how far you can go using recyclables? Here’s a story from Parade magazine about a guy who wondered just that. As a home builder, Steve Loken was in a position to have a big impact. You never know what you can do until you try!

About thinkofitasanadventure

We are a 50-something couple living in the Longfellow neighborhood of Minneapolis. We attended a sustainability conference at our local high school in November 2010, with keynote speaker Richard Heinberg from the Post Carbon Institute. What we heard shocked us deeply. We finally understood the need to transition away from fossil fuels as quickly as possible. We immediately began to change the way we live. We joined together with other folks in our neighborhood to learn more, to do more and to have fun doing it! We're part of Transition Longfellow. We're choosing to change now and to "think of it as an adventure." If you are on this journey too, we'd love to hear from you.
