Can shipping container homes be sustainable?

    Absolutely.  The idea itself is a great example of proactive recycling in action.  And as long as we are continuing to use up shipping containers, there will be ample supplies for these homes.

    Definitely, a shipping container home would have to be incredibly wasteful to NOT be considered sustainable.  There are over 17 million shipping containers in the world currently, measuring 8 feet tall by 8 feet wide by 20 or 40 feet deep.  They are remarkably durable, made from steel, so home maintenance costs much less.
