Another feature is breathable walls that help control interior condensation. Sustainable homes often are built with locally made bricks and plantation grown renewable timber. They also have a water tank for rainwater collection and an on-site wastewater treatment system .

    Having a sustainable home means that being green and eco-friendly is taken into consideration in every aspect, from the materials that are used to build the home to the systems and appliances that will go inside the home.  As nellieliz4 mentioned there are many materials such as local bricks, solar panels, etc that can be installed.  There are also things like non-electric propane gas refrigerators which use zero electricity to run and waterless toilet systems as well as self-composting toilet designs and stainless steel appliances.
