Earthship is a fascinating place to visit although, except for the one that acts as a visitor center/museum/gift shop, you cannot actually go in one since they are private residences. All the structures are constructed with natural or recycled materials, grow their own vegetables, recycle their water, and manage their own sewage. It is very interesting.

Earth Buffered buildings with solar panels and rain water catching systems. Cannot go into a number of the areas and bottles in a wall somehow do not save much in my mind.
