lamar5292 has an idea for getting Haitians green housing:

So how do you provide quick permanent safe housing that is also green in a situation like that? My suggestion is to take all the countries excess shipping containers to Haiti to be converted into homes. Shipping containers are much stronger than conventional homes and can withstand earthquakes and hurricanes much better.

Is this a viable solution? Join the conversation.
