Eco-village in Jamaica made of earthbags

The earth-bag house takes 6 weeks to build and costs $5000 to make. It is healthy and environmental friendly to live. Once painted, the earthbag structure appears like a modern home, providing a sustainable solution for housing that can be customized with sleek interior! ;)

In the south east of Jamaica, there’s a mini eco-village called The Source. With the assistance of the professional expertise to contribute through healthcare, education and permaculture, the villagers are happy and proud to live with organic farming, renewable energy, and earthbag homes. Earthbag building is built with bags filled with local, natural, non-toxic materials, at the same time, it is extremely sustainable. The source is an innovative model community of sustainable living that is dedicated to respecting and restoring our Earth.

We can live well simply with what the nature gives us! 🙂
