Builders Without and Intertribal COUP built and promoted sustainable structures on Capitol Hill this week.

Builders Without Borders created a straw-bale eco-house to demonstrate energy-efficient design and green building techniques.

The USBG organized this exhibition, called One Planet - Ours! to showcase earth-friendly techniques and technologies including edible school yards, urban orchards, a solar greenhouse, photovoltaic panels, vertical wind turbines, green roofs and rainwater harvesting.
