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.
