Are modern designed homes easier to make eco friendly?

    Modern homes can be designed to be eco friendly by using green insulation materials (such as recycled glass), efficient water use design, and the inclusion of solar and wind power to provide off the grid energy.  The majority of a homes environmental impact is through its energy use, so even older homes can be retrofitted for energy efficiency through better insulation and new windows.  The addition alternative energy solutions can also be used for older homes, generally increasing their property value as well.
