ORGANIZERS: Earthship Biotecture Europe (aka Team Europe), which is a network consisting of:  Earthship Biotecture Sweden in close co-operation with Earthship Biotecture HQ, Earthship Biotecture Germany, Earthship Biotecture Portugal, Earthship Romania and Earthship Italy.

ABOUT THE EARTHSHIP LECTURE TOUR AN ORGANIZERS 

Earthship Biotecture Europe (aka Team Europe) was formed as a natural follow up step to an earlier 3-day Earthship workshop in Stockholm with Michael Reynolds, attended by people from all around Europe. Earthship Biotecture (EB) Portugal, EB Germany & Earthship Romania was started up, and the idea of a European Earthship Lecture Tour was born.

Earthships are self-sufficient buildings made from natural and recycled materials. These buildings heat and cool themselves, produce all their own electric power with solar and wind, harvest, treat and reuse their own water and have an integrated south-facing greenhouse for year around indoor food production.

tires considered a green building material?

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...Read More
