The Phoenix Earthship

The moment you pull off HWY 64 and into the Greater World Earthship Community, you immediately get a beautiful warm sense of a sustainable environment. This community consists of over 70 Earthships, completely off the grid, modern infrastructure and conventional ‘homes’. As you make your way down Gorge View towards one of the more unique Earthship homes, you will start noticing life everywhere.

tires considered a green building material?

“The reason tires are not considered a green building material anymore is because the technique originated in a time when there was no way to recycle tires, so they simply went to landfills. Today there are tire recycling programs all over the world. Old tires are made into new tires, and every time a tire is not recycled, it drives up the price of new tires and more raw materials must be extracted.” –Cowichan Valley Clay
