Let’s face it, moving into a custom built eco-home can be very expensive. Most people struggle to afford proper insulation for their homes, never mind trying to live 100% eco-friendly lives. However, UK-based eco-artist, Monika Margrett, decided to prove that it is possible for anyone to turn their home into an eco-heaven using basic tools and on an extremely tight budget. In her latest project, “Eco Living” (created for her environmental charity, Our Greener Future ), Monika transformed an empty attic into a living space filled with eye-catching, hand-crafted eco-furniture and accessories.

A new product called the InnoGro Garden is making aquaponics easier for anyone to implement right at home. The smartphone-enabled aquaponics system mounts on top of 10-gallon freshwater aquarium, utilizing fish waste to grow plants indoors year-round. Its custom mobile app, in conjunction with built-in sensors and automated equipment, will allow even the most novice of gardeners and fish-keepers to grow their own food. Users choose their desired plants and fish from a database, and pre-configured settings are provided for an easy gardening experience. The InnoGro will be available on Kickstarter this month with an early bird pledge of $379. For more information, visit www.getinnogro.com .

Michael Jantzen ’s Eco-Aquaponic House is a cylindrical steel structure that creates a self-sustaining environment for growing fish and plants – waste generated by the fish is used to fertilize the crops. The building is equipped with glass and shade screens that rotate to adjust to different weather conditions. During hot weather the shade screens can be pulled around the plants to prevent overheating, while in the winter two insulating sections are positioned to protect the plants and fish from the cold.
