The first time a community introduced recycling, it had to learn the procedures. What do you do with this new curb side container? What can and can't you put in it? What day do you put it out? It's certain many resisted the change.
Once learned, it becomes habit. Columbus, Ohio recently reported that it's landfill will be full in 25 years. If they can reduce and redirect 20% of the waste over that time, when will the taxpayer need to buy' a new one? 30 years? 40 years?
Building green is saving money as much as saving our planet's resources. If a thin brick wall system can save resources, construction costs and monthly utility costs, then why are designers resisting the offer to consider a thin brick solution early in a project's design phase? What is stopping us from learning the first time and trying a proven, energy efficient system?
Just like recycling, once mastered; designing with sustainable materials and systems will become second nature.
