Portsmouth NH Homes Tour –
Sustainability Homes and Organizations Tour
This past Saturday, Portsmouth NH was home to the Second Annual Sustainability Fair, and this coming Saturday the fair continues with The Sustainability at Home Tour.
This home tour will be showcasing Portsmouth homes and organizations that are currently using sustainable practices in their building materials, energy usage, conservation measures, and storm water management.
The Sustainability Fair stated last year to bring about greater awareness of making Portsmouth a more eco-friendly town and as a way to make sustainability a reality through collective efforts of various groups and individuals in the area. Last year’s fair had about 70 vendors, this year had just over 100 vendors.
This year’s Fair theme was “The Natural Step Four System Conditions”.
In a simplified form, The Natural Steps systems process embraces four sustainability principles or conditions:
- Reducing Dependence on Fossil Fuels
- Reducing Dependence on Synthetic Chemicals
- Reducing Encroachment on Nature
- Meeting Human Needs Fairly and Efficiently
Recycling plays a large role in making a sustainable community. And with that in mind, admission to this year’s Fair was an item that could be reused or recycled. Some of the items being asked for were cell phones, ink cartridges, used clothing and shoes, eyeglasses, books, CD’s, DVD’s, and electronics.
If you missed the Fair last weekend, you can catch the Portsmouth NH Homes Sustainability Home Tour this Saturday. For more information on this Portsmouth Home Tour, check this link for the “Sustainability at Home” tour.
