Here are some renewable resources that are used –

Bamboo:  This material is sustainable and an alternative to wood.  It has a lower impact on the environment but lasts just as long.  Bamboo is used for flooring and counter tops, amongst other uses.

Rainwater:  A green home requires a sustainable water supply.  The cheapest rainwater harvesting methods are actually the most efficient, but the advice of an expert is recommended when installing such a system.  A vendor with an excellent reputation provides us with the best rainwater harvesting system.

Solar energy:  We’ll need to consider our needs carefully.  Photo-voltaic solar panels are the most obvious method for reducing reliance on the grid – we’ll need to ask ourselves how much energy is needed for all our appliances.  There are also ways to reduce the amount of energy that we’ve been using.
