The New Joneses is a social experiment like no other. An eight star energy rated Ecoliv Building clad with Weathertex will be hydraulically lifted into Federation Square with Sunrise presenter Edwina Bartholomew living in the Ecoliv Buildings home from the 10th – 14th February. This will form part of the Sustainable Living Festival held at Federation Square, with an open house for the public on the following weekend of the 15th and 16th of February.
Bartholomew will live in the most eco-friendly and sustainable way possible, with a minimal waste lifestyle that will educate Sunrise viewers and Federation Square visitors about energy efficiency, the second hand economy and reducing food waste. She will drive a Nissan electric vehicle and purchase her fruit and vegetables direct from farmers to reduce carbon emissions and transport costs.
The Ecoliv Buildings home in Federation Square will demonstrate how prefabricated homes can significantly reduce household energy use with solar power and water saving features that minimise our consumption. This helps Ecoliv Building owners to reduce greenhouse gasses and utility bills into the future. Ecoliv Buildings incorporates a unique approach to the design, construction and operational practices that significantly reduce the negative effects of development on the environment making each home as sustainable as possible both now and in the future.
