Waste Recycling

Your septic, sewer and even trash disposal systems are important because their ultimate destination is back into the environment. We help homeowners explore ecologically friendly ways to minimize the impact of waste disposal and ensure their home’s contributions to the environment are net positive, instead of harmful.

Green building materials don’t just result in beautiful homes—they’re also inherently more beneficial for the environment. They’re sustainably sourced, environmentally non-impactful and deliver great relative sustainability to ensure a longstanding home that’s a friend to the environment around it.

  • Adobe
  • Concrete
  • Conventional
  • Rammed earth
  • Tire wall


Environmental home design also includes forethought to interior home design—how efficient your home is or sustainable materials you’re using inside your home, like flooring or insulation. We’re happy to consult with you on sustainable choices for interior remodeling and design, so you can feel good about your surroundings and their net positive impact on the environment.
