Summary
This program profiles CO2 Zero, an eco-friendly housing development in the UK, focusing on its use of recycled plastics and FSC-certified wood. The architect built with renewable and reclaimed resources, and took into account how all parts of the houses would be disposed of at end-of-life, thus minimizing the carbon footprint of this unique living space. Although the countertops are made from nonrenewable plastic, that plastic was created from salvaged material-melted-down Lego toys. The video also documents modern timber production, with a representative from England's historic Forest of Dean explaining how clear cutting can be part of sustainable management, when conducted properly
