Hi its me again just telling you about how I have been more sustainable since the start of this term. I decided that I should watch less t.v so to save power so instead I decided to read instead so it saves power and I don't get square eyes.

today I decided to (seeing in my house I have to vacuum) broom the tiled part of the house instead of just vacuuming like usual. That saves power and its way more fun.
I didn't know being sustainable could be so much fun, if I had known I would have started ages ago!! =-]

In class we have been looking eco footprints and how we could reduce our own.
Heres a site that calculates your eclogical footprint http://www.earthday.net/footprint/
We decided that we have to come up with three things that we would do to reduce it.
here are my three things:
I will recycle more
I will have shorter showers and sometimes have cold ones
and I will also buy energy saving light bulbs

Here is a house he designed
He came in to our class on Wednesday to talk to us about sustainable architecture and what it is. Sustainable architecture is all about trying to use as little energy in your house as possible. Its also trying to create as little waste while building it. You need to use things like double glazing and lots of insulation.
On Tuesday the second of July two people came from the University of Waikato in co-operation with SIFE . they came to talk to us about sustainability and how we could reduce reuse and recycle some of our rubbish. They also tipped out our rubbish and showed us how much 'rubbish' that could be recycled. It was shocking. =-0. At least halve of our rubbish is recyclable.
