In this “Why tiny houses can save the earth” infographic the tinyhousebuild.com covers some ways that tiny houses can help the environment.
- We are wasting our resources at a faster rate than we can renew them. Housing plays a substantial role in this.
- When constructing an average sized house, you need almost 7 logging trucks of wood. Whereas in a tiny house, you need only about half of one logging truck.
- There is significant pollution associated with the average house (about 28,000 pounds of CO2 emissions per year).
- A tiny house generates about 2,000 pounds.
