I was absolutely amazed when I saw the features of this eco-designed home! It is made from recycled materials, has a built in solar panel, and has a small ecological footprint. In addition, this unit closes up and can relocate from site to site. For those of you that are “on the go” travelers this may be just the perfect home for you. The link below will take you to the designers site and includes many more detailed photos of the Ecopod’s interior.
While I was volunteering for Sustainable Fox Valley this morning at Just Act Natural’s Green Market, a women asked me if I knew where to find a geodesic dome kit. I was unsure how to respond, I have heard of domes before. Like the bio-dome that is a controlled ecosystem or the comedy movie called, Bio-Dome. This was a question I did not have an answer for until now.
I researched the topic and discovered that there are kits sold from CO to design your own geodesic greenhouse. This is beneficial to do year round gardening in cold climates. The link below will take you directly to the site to learn more.
