Over the years many people have come to our group after first becoming interested in Earthships, the houses built with tires, cans and dirt, which were invented by New Mexico architect, Michael Reynolds.
Though designed for the mountains of New Mexico and less common in Texas there is at least one earthship in our region, near Leakey, Texas.
Now we can all learn more about the tumultuous and dramatic life of this pioneer of green design in a documentary, Garbage Warrior. It is available on Netflix though there is quite a wait to get it. However it is also available for sale on the movie website. Rotten Tomatoes gives the film an 80% on the Tomatometer.
Below is a trailer for the film. UPDATE: This isn't the trailer but it is an interesting video about Michael Reynolds.
