Garbage Warrior is an award-winning documentary about innovative architect, Michael Reynolds and his Earthship design, a building structure that is completely sustainable. Earthships are built using readily-available and discarded materials such as old car and truck tires, empty glass and plastic bottles. Combined with south-facing windows that allow for passive solar gain, the resulting structures can be comfortable without a heating system. Equipped with a rain catchment system to provide water, indoor greenhouses that grow food all year round, and wind- and solar-generated electricity, these homes are able to be completely self-contained without being connected to public water, sewer, or electric systems.
Jonah Reynolds is a world-renowned Earthship builder and educator. Jonah has presented the Earthship design to city governmnet officials, environmental organizations and at educational facilities all over the country and around the world. He teaches at The Phoenix Earthship in New Mexico, a learning academy and visitors’ center at the Sustainable Solutions headquarters. The Earthship Academy is the only fully-sustainable off-grid school in the world that teaches sustainable design. With over 30 years of experience in building and design, Jonah has a unique expertise in the green community.
