Sharing Housing Helps Save Mother Earth

cows - source bondingwithfood dot files dot wpWe hadn’t really thought about this before, but it makes good sense: living in shared housing is good for the environment. Of course: there are environmental benefits like energy savings when two people live in one home rather than two, and when two people live in one home, the use of building materials is cut in half.  But some other serendipitous things can happen when two people live together that turn out to help the environment too.  In one of the National Shared Housing Resource Center’s collection of success stories, one woman was able to move in with a roommate only two miles from her work, saving thousands in commuting expenses annually and reducing her carbon footprint considerably. Another woman planted a garden and maintained it for herself and her much-older roommate, providing them with fresh organic produce that didn’t need to be shipped to them; saving natural resources and reducing pollution. Another started a recycling program for the home she moved into.  Reat the full story at Home-Sharing With the Cows and Chickens.

          That’s very unfortunate that someone would go to the trouble of listing a house for rent if it wasn’t actually available. I do hope you find others who want to share a house, and that you find something together. Best of luck, Kimberly.
