Friday Night at the Movies – Garbage Warrior

I just stumbled upon the documentary Garbage Warrior, and decided this is what we are watching for family movie night tonight.  Let us know if you watched it and what you thought about the documentary in the comment section below.

Description: Garbage Warrior

Imagine a home that heats itself, that provides its own water, that grows its own food. Imagine that it needs no expensive technology, that it recycles its own waste, that it has its own power source.

Shot over three years in the USA, India and Mexico, Garbage Warrior is a feature-length documentary film telling the epic story of maverick architect Michael Reynolds, his crew of renegade house builders from New Mexico, and their fight to introduce radically different ways of living.

Let me know what you think if you decide to watch it–or if you have already seen it.  Did you love it? Hate it? Can’t wait to watch it over and over?

    I saw this about a year ago. I love this guy’s ideas. I would love to have an eco friendly, self sufficient house and an indoor garden. And the bottle walls can be really pretty. Unfortunately a lot of it is experimental and hasn’t been time tested.

    I watched this before. He is definately creative. Love some of his ideas, The glass bottles create a nice coloring and shading to a room. I like the concept of no carbon footprint and recycled building material.

    Thank you for the list of documentaries. We found some of very interesting although it seemed longer than it needed to be. I wish there was more information about his climate. I understand that it gets to be -30 degrees (according to the movie) but would it work in the northeast? I would like to think it absolutely would but the movie was more about his struggle with the laws than practical information I could use. It does, however, provide an interesting research point for whether this might work for something up north. Thanks again.
