Michael Reynolds, founder of Earthships, is an architect, and innovator. For more than three decades, he has been using recycled materials to build self-sufficient, off-the-grid housing. When Michael looks at waste, he sees raw materials for sustainable living structures that might someday shelter large numbers of people. By putting elbow grease behind his vision, Earthships can be found in all 50 states and around the world. He feels that these Earthships are not only homes, but symbolic ships that sail the seas of tomorrow.
