e2 Design

Similar to e2 Energy, the e2 Design DVD is a series of six 25-minute episodes (narrated by Brad Pitt) about designing buildings to work with nature rather than against it.

Reducing a building's energy use by 80%, making homes from recycled materials, China's efforts to avoid the wastefulness of America, students building energy-efficient homes in Mexico ... for one city building, the power company even replaced the meters, because they couldn't believe the building's low energy usage.
I'm certainly daunted by the condition that the planet is in, but I'm extrememly optimistic about what we can do.
Episodes are also available as webcasts from the e2 website.
Adopting sustainable alternatives is not only a matter of progress - it's a matter of survival.
