Out Of The Blue: Exclusive Behind The Scenes & Earthship Video

Take a look inside Earthship, a sustainable and self-contained green building in Taos, New Mexico and check out exclusive behind the scenes photos of our latest collection, Out Of The Blue.

One of the biggest factors in planning a shoot is finding a location that complements the story and clothing. For the Out of the Blue homepage we knew New Mexico would be the perfect backdrop; from white sands, to endless shades of green fields, red earth and deep blue skies, this state has so much to offer us.

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. […]

Taos & The Greater World Community

By Captn_Julz • Photos: Guillaume Beaudoin

We’re producing too much trash on a daily basis, and we don’t recycle enough. We’ve already passed that point where waste management has become a problem, and not only for the Thirld World anymore. One man had a vision more than two decades ago with a new way of building houses in a sustainable way, Michael Reynolds’ idea has never been as needed and Earthships are getting build in many parts of the world.

How We Built Our Earthship, an Off-grid Prairie Home

It took five weeks and one volunteer army to rise this radically sustainable Alberta dwelling.
By Duncan Kinney, 30 Jan 2015,

When you tell people you’re building an Earthship, there are two stock responses. First there are the believers. These are the people who’ve watched Garbage Warrior, twice. They want to talk design and permits and timelines. They’re into it. The other stock response is an incredulous repeating of the word back to you with a question mark attached. Earthship? […]

A New Age of Greenhouse Management Predatorial Insects within the Greenhouse

Contributed to by Daniel Dynan

As discussed in our last greenhouse management article (A New Age of Greenhouse Management: The onset of Earthship greenhouses and their necessity as a household utility), it was explained that the greenhouses in Earthships require a different level of participation than that of traditional greenhouse management.  The planters function to provide the Earthship’s inhabitants with food but also cleans the water that cycles through. The planters serve as the household’s utilities.  While there is a heightened level of involvement within the greenhouse, there are still challenges.  Host insects are an obstacle that we have experienced in our Earthship’s greenhouses.  The plants in the greenhouse are subject to various different host insects that can cause damage or kill plants if the state is serious enough.
