Dear EarthTalk: The cold winter we’re having here in the Northeast has convinced me to finally beef up my home’s insulation, but I’ve heard that spray foam can…
Ecovative Design uses mycelium and agricultural waste to create insulation, demonstrated now in a tiny house (and you can “grow” one too).
The substance still allows daylight to penetrate the ceiling panels, providing energy-efficient illumination, but without the normal inefficiency of untreated glass.

A lack of builders and contractors set up to offer the special financing option is hindering the program’s progress.
The team proved that you don’t have to start from scratch just to end up with a net-zero building.
For those who long for a carbon-neutral life, the Zero Home is a dream come true.
