Austin Residential Remodeling Contractor Supports Sustainable Design

Remodeling? Remember the words of The Lorax

Sustainable Design in Remodeling makes the Lorax smile

Did everyone have a fantastic Halloween yesterday?!?! As an Austin area residential remodeling contractor, we love to "Keep Austin Weird" and there is no better day to do that than on Halloween! We always enjoy putting our design build skills to the test as we create custom Halloween costumes for our company! This year's theme was selected by our our CEO (Chief Executive Offspring), Easton to promote sustainable design. His favorite movie is The Lorax by Dr. Seuss, so we took on the challenge of bringing those characters to life.

This is a must see movie if you have little ones and it carries a special message on taking care of our environment. The film portrays an ambitious young business man named the Once-ler who is setting out to make a name for himself. His product, the Thneed, requires the tuffs from a special type of tree. As production ramps up, so does the chopping down of trees. This summons The Lorax who is the guardian of the forest. He speaks for the trees and tries several antics to get the deforestation to stop. The moral from the story relates to sustainable design and can be summarized in one particular quote:

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not." ~ The Lorax

As you embark on your remodeling endeavors, look for ways to lower your impact on the planet through sustainable design and materials. Some items can be salvaged during demolition and given to companies like Austin's Habitat Re-Store who resell the goods or materials to help fund their mission. Additionally there are many excellent sustainable products available from companies the The Tree House in Austin. We can all do a little and gain a whole awful lot. You can make a difference!
