One of the many things Einstein left us is the first law of thermodynamics. Students know this as the Law of Conservation of Energy, which states “energy can never be created or destroyed”, and that it can only change in one form to another. And the fact that energy is all around us means we don’t have to be dependent on expensive electricity provided by power companies. Making your house green is no easy task, but there are easy ways to jumpstart your quest for a sustainable living. Here are some great ideas from 100% sustainable houses:
