Earthship Village Ecologies



This is an amazing project and in light of events happening across the world, we would be well to pay attention to this project. Let's hope the profit-mongering conservatives do not do their utmost to kill this project.It is for the future of our children, for sustainable living in harmony with the Earth by living on less and use of recyclables.
I have posted a couple of excerpts from this article and posted the website. I highly recommend you check this out................


"Throughout the last forty years Earthship Biotecture has been working toward developing a fully sustainable prototype home that has a zero carbon footprint on the planet. We arrived at this in the early 2000’s and are still perfecting and refining it.

We have a building prototype that harvests its own electricity and water; contains and treats its own sewage; and heats and cools itself without fuel and produces a significant amount of food.

The building is built from 45% recycled materials thus starting the construction of the building with a negative carbon footprint. Discarded materials take the place of new materials that require energy to produce. Also, once used, discarded materials, would have taken energy to dispose of. There is no energy required to reuse existing materials. This further contributes to a negative carbon foot print at the birth of the building."


"So the E.V.E. project is about all of these things, power, water, sewage, food, recycled materials and the economy and a way to live that is more like what i would call direct living. I call it direct soft impact living. It puts people in a position that they can relate to the economy as if it were a swimming pool that they can dive into for a swim if they want to, but when they want to get out, their life is out of the swimming pool and remote from it and not dependent on it. Swimming in the economy is a game, it’s a recreation, it should not be the thing between us and life. That is a big part of what the EVE project is all about... evolution beyond economics made possible through a living vessel that provides all of the essentials and has no carbon foot print."

Not only is this an amazing project, it is a work of art. I hope the idea thrives. I'd love to plop this down smack dab in the middle of my suburban neighborhood.

Earthships are cool. My family has done the Taos Earthship tour a couple of times--very inspiring.
