What's an Earthship?
Earthships are fully functioning, completely off the grid, homes. They also help to balance out the overuse of natural resources by reusing, or repurposing materials that would otherwise end up in a landfill. These homes are designed with the intent of making them widely available including such factors as affordability, simplicity of construction, and compliance with local building codes.
Unlike traditional houses Earthships mimic symbiosis occurring in nature. These sustainable homes use solar and wind power, maintain their own steady temperature, collect their own water, grow food year round, and treat sewage on site.
