What is being Eco- friendly?
Being eco- friendly or environmentally friendly is becoming more and more important. You can see the term used in everything from job ads to dating profiles to even listings houses and vacation homes. So, what is being eco- friendly?
The simplest way to define what being eco friendly means is to say that it is the act of living with intent. The intent is focused on creating harm to environment, and to prevent as much harm from occurring to the environment through your interactions with it. It goes beyond an idea and extends to actual practices that influence how communities, businesses and individuals conduct themselves. Being eco friendly goes far beyond just turning off lights when you leave the room or separating your garbage for recycling- it is about changing the purpose of how you live.

They are a combination of sustainable designs, sustainable development and sustainable living. Eco homes are designed and built as part of the larger ecology of the planet; the design and construction of the building are done in harmony with the natural environment.
