Sustainability Meetup: Earthships! (A Seattle Makers Meetup)
Ever wondered how to go green on a small scale? On a large scale? Where does one even start? Let me introduce a new Meetup series that talks about Sustainability and going green. Our first Meetup will partner with Earthship Seattle (www.earthshipseattle.org) to watch an Earthship documentary that introduces a new sustainable and self-sustaining housing solution. After the documentary, Jamie -- the organizer for Earthship Seattle -- will be available to talk about the project to build an Earthship here in King County! Alongside the documentary there will be bug snacks provided! Our Member, Ether, (also the host of the Sustainability series) cooks with the ultimate sustainable protein: Bugs! Next in the series will be "Insects as a Sustainable Protein," but the rest of the series is open to ideas! Please tell the host if you are allergic to dust mites or shellfish before consuming any of the bug snacks as there is a chance you will be allergic. • What to bring *Ideas on topics about sustainability you would like to see in future Meetups. *Ideas on something to make (It is hosted at a Makerspace after all). *An open mind. • Important to know Please tell the host if you are allergic to dust mites or shellfish before consuming any of the bug snacks as there is a chance you will be allergic.

What we're about

Public Group

An Earthship (pioneered by architect Michael Reynolds) is a type of off-grid sustainable home that uses non-conventional ways to push green design to the max. The end goal is to have a home that takes care of the people living in it by tapping into the local environment without the need to plug into utilities or outside resources (water, sewer, or electric company.)

An Earthship addresses six principles or human needs:

• Maintains its own steady temperature

• Generates its own electricity

• Treats its own sewage, onsite

• Utilizes natural and recycled materials during construction

• Harvests and stores it’s own water from the sky

• Grows food on-site
