Can Earthships Solve Haiti’s Housing?

This is one way to solve a housing crisis. Using discarded tires and bottles to create walls of a home. Architect Michael Reynolds has applied this green building construction technique to more than 1,000 homes and thinks it will be the answer to rebuilding Haiti.
He calls his homes “Earthships” and they are built from used tires, bottles, cardboard, styrofoam and other waste materials. They are sustainable and and rely on solar and wind for energy.

Remember the people of Haiti still need your help as well as forward thinking people like Mr. Reynolds.
