Most readers here are looking for a strong and sturdy container in which to store their goods and/or materials. But little did they know perhaps that there are some rather unusual readers out there who will be looking for cargo containers in which to live! Here talk is not about the stragglers who have little choice but to crawl into derelict, disused and neglected containers in isolated spots, no disrespect meant to them.
Here talk is about those smart people who have embraced everything and anything to do with sustainable developments, reducing carbon levels and cleaning up the environment. These are the stakeholders who are among those at the forefront of helping to create what is today known as the green economy. And indeed, while strong, non-enforceable cargo containers have been in use for many years, they are today still sustainable developments.
Old, discarded containers are not being left to waste, collect garbage and rust. They are being recycled and restored to their formal glory. Having sailed the seven seas in many instances, they are now being put out to pasture to be reused as sustainable green living containers. Whole apartments have been modeled out of these old containers! Those who cannot afford a standard mortgage should start looking into this.
Cargo container living is also an energy saver. It has been shown to be quite innovative as an effective insulator. Smart people who now live in containers are now officially off the grid. But apart from living in a container, apart from using it for what it was originally intended, as an effective storage device, cargo containers are also being used quite effectively by thousands of startup mom and pop businesses across the entire world.
