Eco Cycle Zero Waste Systems
Rather than looking at our production systems as one way and linear, we can redesign them to be cyclical, as in nature, where there is no such thing as waste and materials are kept in the production cycle. Zero Waste is emerging as a paradigm shift, a new, comprehensive socio-technical system that addresses our resource use from product design to disposal.

Americans Wake Up: Car powered on compressed air:
Europe and the rest of the world are developing new technologies that will give them the economic edge in technology and products, as America unthinkingly erodes into a third world nation as our politicians who are beholden to fossil fuel companies, legislate for them to make billions of dollars. A car that runs on compressed air, is a French invention that orchestrates old technologies into a new chassis. Behold this newsworthy clip (that is not ready for U.S. corporate controlled prime time news or even political debate) edited from HD Theater, "The Future Car: Fuel". Just another example of how corporations who control our legislative and executive branches of government are misallocating our resources, treasury and wealth, to insure their short term wealth and global domination, as we deteriorate economically and do nothing to preserve our economic leadership.
Carbon Neutral Homes
Design is also a number one focus. We design a home to fit your needs and budget and also take into consideration all the factors in your home with features if you were to sell your home. We bring into the home all the natural elements like stone, wood etc to create a earthy feel and overall balance. This gives your home the Wow factor and creates a serene atmosphere.
