In the enclosed foyer beyond the front door, a small lizard seeks warmth from the adobe walls. Read More

10 Reasons Why We Need An EarthShip Home

I have never heard of “Earthship” when looking at green homes before, I am so glad I stumbled upon this article as It has really made me think about my own set up and maybe even changed my mind and build one for my family. Basicly an Earthship is a very green, sustainable home. “Earthships can be built in any part of the world and still provide electricity, potable water, contained sewage treatment and sustainable food production. The Most Versatile and Economical sustainable green building design in the world”

The great thing about these designs is Earthships catch water from the sky (rain & snow melt) and use it four times. Water is heated from the sun, biodiesel and/or natural gas. Earthships can have city water as backup. Earthships do not pollute underground water aquifers. Read more about this awesome way of living below.

As a citizen of the earth…

As a citizen of the earth…

I fully have the right…

to harvest water from the sky

to grow my own food in my own home

to harvest energy from the sun and the wind

to contain and reuse my own waste on my own land

to make my shelter comfortable without the use of fossil fuels

and to harvest what others throw away to construct my own home

I am willing to die to defend these rights and to spread the knowledge of how to
achieve them to others.

If six billion other people said this as well…
we would transcend the corporations, the governments, and the federal reserve bank.

We, the people, would always survive.

We Will Always Survive, We Will Live Forever

I Dreamed I was an angel,

I knew how to fly

I saw fire in the canon

burning red up in the sky.

I saw people in the darkness,

I saw people in the light.

They were singing to each other

and it echoed through the night.

 

WE WILL ALWAYS SURVIVE –

WE WILL LIVE FOREVER   Read More
