The Little Pig builds a solid Prius Challenge

Written by Media Manager.

Nick Marer from the Little Pig Building Co stopped by to do the Prius Challenge. His Nelson based building company specialises in sustainable practices and has great knowledge and expertise when it comes to straw bale construction.
Nick Marer and his family live in a straw house and want to help others experience the long term benefits of living and working in an environmentally sound, naturally well-insulated building. Last year The Little Pig Building Co entered the 2011 Registered Master Builders House of the Year and got a bronze award for their work on the Johnston House in Nelson.
They also build in sticks and stones too, well actually that would be more traditional timber and also brick.

Already being a proud Prius owner Nick thought he would have this one in the bag.
So how did he do?

Well Nick actually did very well, coming into the top 10 with an eco score of 3.6 liters per 100km, an EV use of 58%, and a saving of 74c on the 7.5km trip compared to that of NZ's favourite car the Toyota Corolla.
