Protecting Our Home: Planet Earth

 In news_events

Here are three ways Habitat is taking part in conservation efforts:

1. Our Homes Are Solar Powered

Since 2008, every Solano-Napa Habitat for Humanity ground-up build utilizes a solar electricity system. Pictured above is a home we built in Vallejo, CA with a rooftop photovoltaic system. At Habitat, we believe home affordability and sustainable building go hand in hand. Click here to learn more and read 6 quick examples of Habitat’s sustainability efforts.

2. Our ReStore Diverts Waste

Our ReStore in Fairfield, CA encourages up-cycling of furniture, appliances, and home goods, and has diverted more than 600 tons of materials from local landfills in the past year alone. You can take part by donating your new or gently used items, or by shopping for your next home improvement project at our ReStore. Learn more at: solanonapahabitat.org/restore

3. We Recycle Cars

Every day, Habitat’s Cars for Homes program generates funding from the sale of used cars, trucks, and other vehicles. Those funds are distributed to local affiliates like ours to help build affordable homes. Recycling cars keeps a huge amount of steel out of landfills – enough to build nearly 45,000 steel-framed homes every year. The energy saved each year is enough to power approximately 18 million homes! Click here to learn more and donate your vehicle – it’s fast, easy, and you may qualify for a tax deduction.
