The earthship... a fully self contained, sustainable and eco-friendly home that grows all their own food, recycles and uses only rain water, and receives all electricity from the wind and sun. all the walls are built from old tires, glass, plastic and aluminum bottles, and adobe (sand, mud, straw). they can grow food all year round including figs, melons, mushrooms, peppers, kale!, herbs, bananas, pineapples and tomatoes. they can be found in every state in the u.s. and in many locations around the globe. this is also an answer to emergency housing and low income housing... can be erected in 4 weeks. what do you think? the future of the world?? #earthship#ecohomes#earthfriendly#ecofriendly#sustainable#sustainablehome

In my opinion, the dishwasher is truly one of the greatest inventions of modern history. 🍽 the detergent often used with it, however, could use some work. apart from that perfect gleam and sparkle it leaves on your dishes following a successful wash, it is an invisible source of toxicity, all caked on the very utensils and dinnerware you use to hold and handle the food going into your body. the residues contain ingredients such as chlorine bleach, formaldehyde, coal tar dyes (which contain traces of heavy metals such as cadmium, lead and arsenic), dea, mea and tea - all hormone disrupting chemicals and possible carcinogens. many of dishwasher detergents have a complete failing score from the ewg for their negative endocrine, developmental and reproductive effects. @nature_clean, @seventhgeneration are better options when shopping for dishwasher detergent. you can also make your own, though i imagine that the time spent making your own dishwasher tablets may as well be spent just hand washing those dreaded dishes! #homedetox#keepnatureclean#madebyreallynicecanadians#generationgood@whealthyandco
