Life on the Edge: Earthships

Off-the-grid homes made from tires, dirt, and garbage are more desirable than you might think.

Otherwise known as “Earthships,” these self-reliant homes are capable of water collection, solar-powered temperature regulation, and crop harvesting—producing anywhere from 25-50% of the food that a resident would need.

Once thought to be reserved for survivalists and hippies, these “living vessels” are experiencing a spike in global demand due to the climate concerns, housing shortages, and rising energy costs.

Watch to learn why Earthships could be the future-proof homes we’ve been waiting for.
