Have you ever heard of an Earthship?
No, it isn't your typical Star Trek Enterprise Earth Ship. It's a home design concept called an Earthship. Earthships are sustainable homes and buildings made from all recycled products. If it doesn't sound appealing, check out the picture below from the Earthship website.
According to their website, an Earthship is defined by the following six principles:
- Thermal/Solar heating and cooling
- Solar and wind electricity
- Contained sewage treatment
- Building with natural and recycled materials
- Water harvesting
- Food production
Earthships can be built and maintained in any climate. To learn more about Earthships, follow this link or view this YouTube video.
