Tour the Trash Studio on Sunday February 28th

A lot of people have just learned about the existence of the Trash Studio, the first Earthship project in Seattle, built without money.

We’re hosting a tour this Sunday between 4:30pm and 6pm.

The site might be muddy so dress appropriately, and if you feel like doing some work while you’re there, you desire will be met 🙂

Otherwise, just come check it out!

The Trash Studio is an Earthship inspired tool shed which will act as the first demonstration of Earthship principles in Seattle.

It’s the first step toward showing the community and the local authorities that you can build cheap, super sustainable buildings that reuse trash and turn it into beautiful healthy buildings for the future.

This first project is critically important because it’s also acting as a test which will eventually help people in the greater Seattle area know how to design for our climate and how to get building permits for Earthships.

The building will also be used to demonstrate and teach sustainability and Permaculture in the years to come.

The Trash Studio is not a full on Earthship. An Earthship is a set of 6 principles: building with recycled and natural materials, passive heating and cooling, rain water harvesting, renewable electricity production, in door food production, and contained sewage treatment.

The Trash Studio is not implementing the Earthship principles about electricity, food, or sewage. It’s partially implementing the Earthship principles of passive heating and cooling, and rain water harvesting. It is implementing to an extreme the Earthship principle about recycled and natural materials. As a matter of fact, we have used absolutely no money on the build so far, and instead have been relying on volunteer work, various local gift economy networks, and creativity to turn trash into building materials.

Recycling Center Tour

This is an event from the “Minimalism & Simplicity” Meetup group, which I’m duplicating here because it looks awesome!

Recycling Center

Recycling Center

“Hi everyone!

Have you ever wondered what happens to the huge amount of plastic, glass and paper we empty into the dark green recycling bins and place at the curb each week? What happens to all the lids less that 3 inches, the food containers that still have food stuck to the sides, or shampoo bottles with that last inch of stubborn soap at the bottom? Seattleites are strong recyclers but often fall victim to the act of “Wishcycling” or throwing things in the recycling bins because we “hope” they will be recycled or think they “should” be recyclable. But how does this affect the sorting process at the recycling centers? Does it do more harm than good?

Come find out more about the recycling process in the Seattle area and get these and other questions answered!

During the tour we will dive into the entire process, how everything is sorted and what they do at the facility. More information:

The visit will include about 45 minutes in our conference room, where we will discuss recycling procedures and observe sorting activity on closed circuit television. We will then watch the sorting process from the observation deck for about 5-10 minutes. Sturdy shoes: Visitors must wear sturdy closed-toe shoes. Photographs: Visitors may take still photographs, but video cameras are not allowed.

Accessibility: The conference room where you will be for most of the visit is wheelchair accessible. However, it is necessary to climb 24 steps to watch the sorting process from the observation deck at the end of your visit.

The address is 14020 NE 190th St, Woodinville, WA 98072. You can access directions at http://wmnorthwest.com/cascaderecycling/directions/. Please park in the upper parking lot off of NE 190th St and 142nd Ave NE. Walk down the hill and enter the building through the double doors with a WM decal on them. Use the stairs or elevator to go to the second floor, and you will see the classroom on your right.

Call (425) 652-0862 if you have any questions. More information about the CRC is available at http://www.wmnorthwest.com/cascaderecycling/index.html.

NOTE FOR CARPOOLING: For people driving from Seattle, we will plan to meet up at a central location at 2pm (TBD) so we can drive over together in less cars.”
