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.

If I had one criticism of this DVD, it would be that I'd like to know more about the houses themselves and less about Mr. Reynold's struggle to get them accepted by the mainstream. They just make sense to me, and I admire the man immensely. He's put a lot of himself into his designs, it's a shame that so many, particularly of his earlier designs, look like they'd work well on Mars. Actually, they probably would work well on Mars and he should be in conversation with the folks at the Mars One society, though I suppose there's not a lot of old tires kicking around up there. LOL Still, the philosophy applies.
