Nonrenewable resources include gas, which is used to provide heat in homes, coal which is used to provide electricity in homes, and uranium which is used to provide electricity. Clothes line, LED's, pellet stove, eco friendly washer, and solar panels are all eco friendly appliances and technologies that can be used in a green home.
