Sustainable Communities Initiatives
Sustainable Communities InitiativesWe are a Scottish registered charity working with waste, helping people to live more sustainable lifestyles.
We provide Creative Waste & Eco Workshops , Plastic Bottle Structures , Staff Away Day Activities - a fully autonomous building made from waste materials.
An Earthship is a passive solar building with thermal mass. This means that it maintains a comfortable living temperature year round. It is made from natural and recycled materials - predominantly earth-rammed tyres and aluminium cans. It is powered by renewable energy, such as wind, water and solar power. It catches its own water supply from rainwater, and treats and contains its own sewage in planter beds.
Earthships are a concept, not a set design. They can be adapted for any climate worldwide. Earthships offer people the opportunity to build their own homes and make a conscious decision to live lightly on the earth.
Come on a guided tour; browse through the small library of eco-building books and videos; have a hot drink powered from renewable sources and contemplate what it would be like to live in a house with no bills.
