In a world riddled with climate change concerns, the tiny house movement seems to be the future for sustainable living. So, what are tiny houses? These are homes often on wheels with not more than 500 square feet of space. It’s a cosy little abode that’s perfect for just two people. Joe Gebbia, Airbnb’s co-founder has launched a new company, Samara, which urges you to stay in tiny homes. Here’s all about it.

Tiny Homes Ensure You Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

The benefits of adopting the tiny house movement as part of your lifestyle, are endless. For starters, staying in a smaller home would lead you to use fewer resources and reduce your carbon footprint. So, you will end up consuming less food, generating less waste and making the most of a cosy lifestyle on your house on wheels.
