Scott Hunt, aged 45 years is a water specialist. Growing up during a severe drought in Australia, he uses some great content in order to transform the 500 square meters of the house in which lives in an ecological paradise. During this transformation, Greenovate, one of the leading suppliers of green building materials in Ohio, USA, were present to watch the stages of renovating the house of Hunt. Some of the materials that the specialist used are in the top 5 of the most amazing organic products on the list of the Greenovate.

1. The first organic material is an organic paint (low / no VOC paint). After several unsuccessful attempts, Hunt with his friends decided to repaint using ecological paint the entire house. This reduces the amount of volatile organic compounds found in many households, which is beneficial for the air quality and health. Studies have put many organism diseases due to volatile organic compounds.

2. The exterior paint has a ceramic additive that is mixed in it. A smart move, considering it was developed and used by NASA! This additive reflects heat from the outside or inside, to reduce the cost of heating or cooling rooms. He even acts as an insulator noise or non-combustible substance.

3. Thermal insulation to keep the house cool or heat inside is not as difficult as some would think. Another way to do this is through effective insulation. Do not try to reinvent the wheel here because the best options have already been exposed the insulation from recycled paper and to the isolation of denim.

4. The opting for a green kitchen countertops can create from it a center of attraction of the kitchen, and saves great useful resources. There are a variety of them to choose to match the most diverse styles.

5. The top fifth material of the green housing materials is something that you did not think normally and is not used too much material inside. When you build the house or working on decorating the exterior, choose any asphalt concrete in place. It is more aesthetic using basic materials lasts for years and can be recycled!
