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.

5.0 out of 5 stars inspiring July 28 2010
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Earthship Voyage April 20 2011
By Gary Fuhrman TOP 50 REVIEWER

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Insight Nov. 3 2008
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

5.0 out of 5 stars DVD July 14 2008
By Concerned Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This video is available for $24.98 on the movie's website plus shipping and handling. I would never pay what they are selling for through the used DVDS. Sort of defeats the purpose that whole idea of the movie is promoting by trying to profit that horribly off it. Shame on you.

5.0 out of 5 stars a MUST SEE by all means. May 6 2008
By Reginald E. Mccafferty - Published on Amazon.com
Hippies, Anarchist, Architecs, Artists...All lovers of life and buidling, lend me your ears.

Treasure, what this man has discovered it nothing short of treasure, beyond gold and diamond.

This is NOT some tree hugger wanting to live in a field. This is the corperate and industial building with death. Our nuclear power is quite deadly, suck on the tailpipe of a car-deadly too. Aspestise, lead, emissions...but this guy builds out of life. renewable, sustainable, comfortable and innovation.

This movie is really too much to put into a few words. It could change how you live your life. It expands from the a focus as singular as one man to the needs of nations, foreign nations willing to accept wise help, nations lacking in pride and abundant in humility.

it's funny, calming, disgusting, inspiring as well as many other emotions. This is a movie I want to show as many people as I can, much like when I first read the books Ishmael: An Adventure of the Mind and Spirit & My Ishmael Both also life changers.
