Free Film Showing of Garbage Warrior!

Garbage Warrior

Garbage Warrior


Earthships are a radically sustainable form of building that incorporates many principles such as using trash to build, thermal mass heating, and on-site food production. There are Earthships all over the world, in all climates, but none close to Tacoma – yet.

Join us for a FREE movie screening of the documentary Garbage Warrior to learn more about Earthships and their founder, Mike Reynolds. . Plus, there will be builders available in the audience to talk about a potential site in this region.

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.


Earthship community get-together on May 5th!

Join us to learn about Earthships, meet people interested in sustainable living and building, and get involved!

We are excited to bring people together, new and old. Bring a dish you enjoy and a friend if you like!
