Te Puke’s earthship build

Te Puke’s Fruit of the Pacific charitable trust is spearheading a two-week project to teach Ni Vanuatu RSE workers how to build an ‘earthship’ when they return home – to use as houses or safety shelters.

Earthships are a self-contained, impact-minimising land-based ‘ship’ – constructed from what others throw away and designed to work in harmony with the environment, say their designers Earthship Biotecture.

Fruit of the Pacific’s Kylie DellaBarca Steel witnessed Cyclone Pam hit Vanuatu on March 15-16.

‘It’s a funky off-grid house:’ Take a tour of Alberta’s first official earthship

LETHBRIDGE COUNTY — In the dead of winter, in the middle of the southern Alberta prairies, the Kinneys’ Christmas dinner included juicy tomatoes freshly picked from the family’s new home.

Producing vegetables even when there’s snow on the ground isn’t the only feature that makes the Kinneys’ abode unusual.

Made of 800 recycled tires and 12,000 cans encased in mortar, the long and skinny bungalow is a radically sustainable building that offers all the comforts of a modern home without any electricity or water bills. READ MORE »

Las Earthships (Navetierra en español) mantienen una temperatura ambiente de forma natural, producen su propia electricidad, recolectan y almacenan agua de lluvia, tratan aguas residuales y producen alimentos claves en una dieta saludable. Todo esto sin tener que pagar recibos de luz o de agua.

Michael Reynolds es además el jefe de diseño, tanto de estructura como de sistemas. Es capaz de adaptar los diseños Earthship y las técnicas de construcción a cualquier clima del mundo.

Cash for Trash on National Geographic

In more ways than we know, our lives are built on trash. If you stacked up all the world’s old junkyard tires, they would reach to the moon and back. So what can we do with them all? How about building houses.

 Invented by architect Michael Reynolds of Taos, New Mexico, Earthships are custom-built, off-the-grid houses built from recycled materials, like recycled bottles (pictured), aluminum cans, used tires, pieces of cardboard – even old fridge doors. READ MORE »

“The American Dream” Earthships

“The American Dream Project” travelled around the United States on motorcycles visiting towns and communities in search of places where the American Dream is still alive.  In the “Taos: Innovation” episode they visited the Greater World Earthship Community and the Earthship Academy.  They spoke with Earthship Founder Michael Reynolds, Academy advisor Tom Duke and a few of the students.  They also pitched in and helped build a bottle wall at the EVE: Earthship Village Ecologies Project.

The “Extraordinary” Mike Reynolds

Mike Reynolds is featured amongst 50 people who fit the category of “extraordinary.”

By: Peter Horsfield

“Sustainable, comfortable and eco-friendly. These are just a few of the words that one can use to describe the architectural wonders called “Earthships” that were designed and constructed by Mike Reynolds, an architect with an environmentalist perspective. Mike’s designs may often be regarded by many as ‘unusual’ and sometimes even ‘impractical’, but one cannot but help admit that Mike’s radical architectural designs are indeed fascinating and amazing.”
