Barbie, the iconic fashionista, has always been an inspiration when it comes to setting trends in the realms of fashion, education and empowerment.
However, she could also be leading the way in sustainable living. Home Efficiency Australia founder, Allys Todd, sheds light on the energy-efficient marvel that could be Barbie’s Dream House.
“Barbie is not just a role model; she could now be a trailblazer in eco-conscious living, Her Dream House could exemplify energy efficiency with chic solar panels, smart automation, and eco-friendly furnishings.”
She added: “Barbie is not only a fashion icon but also a practical individual who understands the value of financial savvy. To maintain a low-carbon lifestyle and keep up with the latest efficiency upgrades, Barbie should opt for a Home Efficiency Health Check.”

- Smart house, smarter Barbie: Embracing the latest in technology, Barbie’s Dream House features smart devices and automation for energy efficiency. With a simple voice command, Barbie can dim the LED lights, optmise natural lightng through smart windows, and ensure she conserves energy when needed.
- Fashionably pro-choice and purpose: Barbie’s commitment to sustainability is evident through her choice of decor and furnishings. Her Dream House proudly showcases recycled furniture and reclaimed accessories. Additionally, her ingenious upcycling of old clothes into fabulous outfits further demonstrates that fashion and sustainability go hand in hand.
- Electricity consumption: It is worth noting that Barbie’s elevator increases her energy consumption, and in times of financial strain, she might face challenges paying her power bills. Considering energy-efficient alternatives for her vertical transportation might be prudent.
- External walls: The Dream House’s minimal external walls may impact its overall energy efficiency rating. While Barbie enjoys a perpetually sunny and constant climate, it is essential for her to consider potential climate changes in the future and reassess her house design.
- Heat island effect: To enhance cooling during summers, Home Efficiency Australia suggests incorporating more trees and green walls into Barbie’s surroundings, providing natural cooling and combatting the heat island effect.
“You too can transform your house into an efficient Dream Home. Embrace sustainability, explore renewable energy options, and create an eco-friendly abode that aligns with your values.” Allys said.
