Comments Off on EcoCasa Suyana is an sustainable, open-source home project in Argentina

EcoCasa Suyana is a project lead by a couple of young engineers and travelers that is the first ecological, economical and 100% open-source home in Argentina. Suyana means “hope” in Quechua language and idea of EcoCasa Suyana project is to build a green, sustainable, affordable home, that can be a model for the construction of community housing . The concept was created by Noa and Cristian, a couple who decided to change their life nine months ago. They sold their few possessions in Buenos Aires and began a trip in Latin America. During their trip, they discovered social and environmental problems that appeared to have an easy solution given the right materials and know-how. Noa and Cristian realized that “in order to improve the quality of life and reduce the impact on the environment, we need to bring together various sustainable technologies and practices into one place: in a house that can be visited and serve as an inspiration for better housing.” Each stage will be documented and the project will be 100% open source in order to share the information with people in need. The design can be adapted depending on the climate, population and the materials available in order to adapt the model to other locations. + Fund EcoCasa Suyana + Follow Cristian and Noa The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Retina Display MacBook Pro Included in EPEAT Green Electronics Registry

Apple’s newest laptops just got a stamp of approval from the world’s leading green electronics certifier. The  Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT)  released its review of new laptops this week and found that the new MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro with Retina Display both met the group’s green standards. The announcement comes just a few months after Apple briefly withdrew all of its products from EPEAT’s green products registry. But not everyone is happy with the news; Greenpeace is accusing EPEAT of loosening its standards in order to give Apple a pass.
