By michellehorton |

In honor of Earth Day, we’re rounding up some of the most innovative, eco-inspired homes in the world. Homes that are sustainable, smart, and environmentally conscious. Homes that make energy, instead of using it. (We’d like that gas bill, please!) Homes that will blow your mind.

25 Greenest Homes in the World

zeroHouse

zeroHouse is a pre-fab home (which can be yours for $350,000) that's designed to be completely self-sufficient — meaning there's no outside utilities needed. zeroHouse produces power through solar panels and stores it in batteries, collects its own water, and it even turns your waste into compost. Plus, all of these functions work with automatic sensors that can be controlled through your laptop. Believe it or not, that's just the beginning of this feature-packed eco dream.
