I like the ideas behind them, recycling makes sense (not just in an environmentally friendly way) and keeping bills down low makes sense in the current system.Though it seems hijacked by the carbon emissions squad (utter bull)
One important thing to consider though is that earthships wont change the system (grid) , the real problem is our resources are stolen and we are forced to pay (repay), it matters not how little we can use, though it may be necessary for most of us who have little fake currency. Will earth ships get our resources back ?
imagine a country full of earthships, each using only a small% of the utilities , the companies will still be selling our energy to industry ,would the price not just go up to counter. We all use the energy saving bulbs, but they never saved us a penny because the energy companies just put the prices up so they make the same profit or greater each year.
The more that do this means less people complaining.
That said i like the use of technology and materials to empower us (DIY), but we are forced to buy regulated materials.

Not necessarily Lopsum, but I do see your point and accept it, but there are options and I exploit them for MY advantage and the first is to produce my own electricity as I use what I want and they pay me with their fake promissory notes for my surplus. Secondly, you can produce your own timber by selective harvesting, seasoning, and cutting your own lumber, I haven't bought any for years; and thirdly we produce our own gas from rainwater and solar/wind power so the eco project is self sufficient in gas and any surplus is bottled.

To a large extent it comes down to what you can do yourself and what skills can be bought to the table, and in these cases it can be collective skills which really need to be harnessed; are you aware solar could be so much cheaper if the EU didn't have such high tariffs imposed on China for PV cells, now there's a brexit thought.
