The Environmental Protection Agency is investing nearly $15,000 to provide walls made out of trash to the poor to heat their homes and reduce their carbon footprints.

The project is being financed through an EPA student design competition for “Sustainability Focusing on People, Prosperity and the Planet.” The program provides funding for college students to test green energy ideas. Past projects include a device to monitor how long hotel guests spend in the shower.
