From generocity.org

  1. It’s built completely from recycled materials.
  2. It generates its own electricity from renewable energy sources.
  3. It runs its own water, which is collected from cisterns on the roof and subsequently filtered and pumped through the building.
  4. It grows its own food sources.
  5. Its internal climate is stabilized by thermal mass.
  6. It maintains its own sewage; it’s used for food production, and toilets are flushed by undrinkable used water (called “gray water”) collected from the building’s showers and sinks.
