Also, the materials used in the construction and maintenance of a home can deplete natural resources. EarthCraft homes, on average, are 30% more energy efficient which can result in a reduction of over 1100 pounds of greenhouse gases introduced into the atmosphere each year. In addition, EarthCraft Virginia homes can conserve water and reduce stormwater pollution.

Finally, by promoting recycling and the use of durable, low maintenance, recycled, and rapidly renewable materials, EarthCraft Virginia helps to ensure our homes conserve natural resources and protect ecosystem biodiversity. EarthCraft Virginia homes are truly “sensibly built for the environment.”
