"I'm personally drawn to Tumbleweed's core philosophy that 'Less is Green.' Yet, we wanted to take it a step farther and examine the materials we use. So when Green Certification became available for Tiny House RVs we decided we wanted to be the first to lead the way. "
- Steve Weissmann, President of Tumbleweed Tiny Homes
What does “GREEN CERTIFIED” mean?
TRA is a leader in the field of systems-built engineering, certification and inspection services. They offer a “green certification” for RVs, which requires an evaluation of a manufacturer’s facility, practices and procedure. Tumbleweed passed inspection for all criteria, including: resource efficiency, energy efficiency, water efficiency and indoor air quality.
The bottom line: We’ve always built our Tiny House RVs to be eco-friendly and now we’re officially certified!
Why does being “GREEN CERTIFIED” matter?
At Tumbleweed, we care about the environmental impact of our facility and our products. Building small isn’t enough, we want to ensure that our Tiny House RVs are built smart and efficient as well.
Just a few examples of our ongoing efforts to be green:
- We plant a tree for each registered Tiny House RV built at our facility
- We recycle unused construction materials off-site
- Our Tiny House RVs are insulated with a high R-value, reducing the need to use utilities
- Low flow water fixtures come standard in our Tiny House RVs
- Rapidly renewable resources such as cork and bamboo are used for major components in our Tiny House RVs
- And much more!
"The tiny house movement has always encompassed an environmentally conscious lifestyle with a smaller carbon foot through reduced building materials and maintenance needs, along with lower energy usage. We purposely went through the process of a third-party engineering review and analysis and are proud to have achieved Green RV Certification for our customers seeking a certified environmental lifestyle."
