We Transform Disaster Debris Into Lego Building Blocks For A New Life We, The Mobile Factory from the Netherlands, have found a solution to make the world a better place. Starting in Haiti. Although the earthquake struck five years ago, there’s still 25 million tons of debris lying around.

We – a small group of rich Dutchmen living in luxury and freedom – can’t and won’t just stand by and watch this any longer.

The Seemingly Simple GO Home is a LEED Platinum House That Packs a Green Energy Punch Photo credit: Trent Bell The bright red GO Home in Belfast, Maine was recently selected as the LEED for Homes Project of the Year for 2011. Completed by GO Logic, the seemingly simple house packs an impressive renewable energy punch and is a LEED Platinum and Passive House certified residence. Because it is a passive house, the home’s owners will see a 90% reduction in their heating bill, resulting in a cool $300 dollars per year for space heating, while enjoying all the comforts of the super insulated building shell during the winter months. With a roof clad in solar panels, The GO Home is also net zero, creating all the energy on site that it needs to provide heat, hot water and electricity for the home owners who will not see an energy bill for the next 25 years.
