High Wind Damage to Homes — 5 Comments

  1. I see, well keep up the good work and eventually the word will get out.

    Or is it too late for America ? Maybe we should all just expatriate :)

    • That’s right. Now how do we take things to the next level? People are naturally resistant to change, plus there are loads of bureaucratic road blocks that hinder progress (to protect big industries and banks). How do we spread the word on the cheap because earthbag isn’t a highly profitable business?

      • Magazines ? Youtube ? Movies ? Books ? Host build parties ? Get celebrity endorsement ?

        Do you want to host a big build party on my vacant land in Rio Rancho New Mexico ?

        I have a small vacant lot in Hardy Arkansas that you can use as well.

        Popular mechanics had all kinds of green builders in their magazines in 1975, including David Wright aia.

        Maybe Popular mechanics would do an interview with you ?

        Micheal Reynolds (Earthships) made a full length movie.

        Youtube videos can become popular and spread the message well.

        Make some youtube videos where you talk about solutions ?

        Make youtube video that teach solutions ?

        You put could your DVD on youtube in low quality for free, and advertise the high quality version for pay. Alex Jones does this with all of his movies. Gary Null does this with some of his movies.

        Get a community of people involved through your website, and make it a public affair when you do a build party in every state ?

        I bet your multi-state build parties could get on local news, and newspapers, and maybe snowball from there ?

        Find some celebrities that are living in green homes and get their endorsement ?

        Maybe use Earthbag homes to rebuild New Orleans neighborhoods that were destroyed by Katrina ?

        Buy a large piece of land, and invite all your readers to live in an Earthbag community there. We all build each other’s homes and we all teach each other cool stuff, and we’ll film the entire thing, and that footage can be edited to be the feature length movie thats get the word out ? It can be called “Earthbag commune” or something like that :) It will be all live music and building cool homes.

        Well that’s all I can think of right now LOL. But there must be a way to build a community of like minded people, and create media, and spread the word.

        I am a computer repair guy in Maine, I’m rather poor but I’ll help you if I can :) I believe in your work ! I believe you are a humanitarian and a genius :)

        Keep up the good work Owen :)

        • Thanks for the ideas. I already have a lot of free videos on my YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/naturalhouses

          I’ve been in several magazines.

          A high dollar video of the best earthbag homes around the world would be too costly for me.

          I’m getting older and busier all the time, so overseeing building projects isn’t practical any more.

          There are numerous natural building eco villages where people could build earthbag homes. Creating another one would take a huge amount of time and effort.

          Celebrity endorsement: They need to come to us.
