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, TheTyee.ca

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? Read More

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.

Earthships on Democracy Now“Earthship Biotecture”: Renegade New Mexico Architect’s Radical Approach to Sustainable Living

New Mexico residents are trying to a break free from Los Alamos’ nuclear legacy by creating more environmentally sound ways of living. At the forefront of this struggle is renegade architect Michael Reynolds, creator of radically sustainable living options through a process called “Earthship Biotecture.” Reynolds’ solar homes are created from natural and recycled materials, including aluminum cans, plastic bottles and used tires. These off-the-grid homes minimize their reliance on public utilities and fossil fuels by harnessing their energy from the sun and wind turbines. In Taos, New Mexico, Reynolds gives us a tour of one of the sustainable-living homes he created.
