Journalist Lisa Ling has spent the past three years building what's now considered the "greenest" home in Santa Monica. The 4,300-square-foot concrete house is LEED Platinum Certified, has solar panels, and is filled with recycled materials from the home that used to stand on the property.

There's a fake grass "lawn," (to help save on watering), a chandelier made of takeout containers, and recycled glass tile in the bathroom. No comment in the video on how much all of this cost Ling, who certainly makes it look easy to go so very green.
