Sustainable living became quite popular lately. The rise of eco villages is one example of this trend. Where eco villages once mainly were set up to help less fortunate communities, nowadays they are shooting up the ground everywhere!
Eco villages are sustainable communities striving to create a social and green environment for their inhabitants.
There are many different forms how a eco village can be created. Already existing buildings can be used to build up an eco village, or the houses can be build from scratch. The newest (sustainable) techniques could be used for the houses, but they can also be build from more rustic materials like wood and clay. They can even be build in abandoned urban areas! In whatever way the village is build, the most important starting point to create these communities is to live social, natural and sustainable.
