While there is a definite housing shortage within the United States, there is a specific need for more affordable housing. When this is combined with the pressing need to construct homes in areas ravaged by natural disasters, shipping containers can provide a viable and welcome solution for this issue.

Currently, there are over 17 million people in the United States that live in manufactured homes. This includes modified shipping containers. In addition to being eco-green, these containers are constructed out of 85% recycled steel. Furthermore, they are fully recyclable when demolished. When these containers are repurposed, it saves considerably on new building materials.
