Low or zero carbon living

These are envac points at the Hammarby Sjöstad low-carbon housing development in Stockholm, Sweden. Waste is dropped in the inlets and using a vacuum system sucked to the collection terminal where it is sorted. It is a working prototype for a new and sustainable way of living.

Low or zero carbon living of the kind promoted in new eco-towns and cities such as Hammarby Sjöstad and the Sonoma Mountain Village in Northern California, which involve radical rethinking of patterns of daily life, from work and transport to housing design and finance.
