Eco-friendly houses catch on in Canada

Home built entirely from recycled materials, powered by sun and wind, will cost next to nothing to run.

    Imagine a house made with sand, cans and old tires that helps reduce your bills.

    This is becoming reality in Canada, where a home powered by the wind and the sun is being built entirely from recycled materials.
