Product Description

Product Description

What do beer cans, car tires and water bottles have in common? Not much unless you're renegade architect Michael Reynolds, in which case they are tools of choice for producing thermal mass and energy-independent housing. For 30 years New Mexico-based Reynolds and his green disciples have devoted their time to advancing the art of "earthship biotecture" by building self-sufficient, off-the-grid communities where design and function converge in eco-harmony. Shot over three years and in four different countries, Garbage Warrior is a timely portrait of a determined visionary, a hero of the 21st century.

That would have been a better title, in my opinion, for this fascinating look at radical green architect Michael Reynolds, creator of the "Earthship". The film demonstrates that it's perfectly possible to build sustainable and energy-efficient dwellings without investing a lot of money in them. It also shows how much time, energy, inspiration and perspiration Reynolds had to invest in order to prove that it could be done with available materials. Quite a lot of the film documents his ongoing struggle in the state legislature against bureaucratic red tape and opposition from the establishment. But the film is a real celebration of what can be accomplished by thinking outside the box and working outside the System.

Please, do yourself a favor and watch this video. If we want to change this world for a better place to live, this video is the start. The architech Michael Reynolds shares his vision of a better way to build self-sufficient, off-the-grid housing and it works people!! It does! Also, see how he managed to rebuilt houses destroyed by a hurricane using nothing but the material found on site.

Perhaps a bit crass, but what do you expect from a hippie? This guy is a genius. His construction techniques are inspiring, accessible, and golly, I think I could do this myself! After watching this film, I feel very positive that housing can be made sustainable.

Story of Michael Reynolds of New Mexico who builds home from drink cans, tires, and plastic bottles. Soon the county is concerned about what he is doing. Eventually he has to go to the state legislature.

When a storm occurs in India he goes there to help build housing and then Mexico. Numerous extras. Insightful. swearing

Here is a film that again shows the obstacles that our governments place in our way. You wonder how much input big business has in the whole housing market. Do the local authorities really believe they are doing the best for us, or are they ensuring their own positions.
You can see the shallowness of the regulatory process when all of a sudden the focus of this movie becomes accepted outside the USA for his work in underprivileged countries. Then all of a sudden he is back in favor. WOW
FANTASTIC
