Silver Bullet is going to Earth Day Texas 2017

We are excited to announce that Vera is the Renogy Solar Ambassador to Earth Day Texas, April 21-23, 2017. Earth Day Texas is the largest global Earth Day event and takes place at Fair Park, Dallas, Texas, 10AM to 6PM each day.

It is our pleasure to provide tours of the zero-waste, all clean energy, solar powered Silver Bullet Tiny House. Take your shoes off, bring your sense of humor and meet Vera Struck, who designed and built a simple, off-grid, sustainable life style.

Her tiny house journey and build are available in her sustainable e-book, ‘Living the Sustainable Tiny Life’ (discount code is available to attendees).

She will be premiering the 2nd edition of her e-book, ‘Living the Sustainable Tiny Life Handbook’, a ten-week process workbook to get you on the road to designing your own sustainable lifestyle!

Step inside the creative, non-toxic, healthy, all sustainable materials tiny house on wheels built by this sustainability dynamo. Her design, based on bio-mimicry, made a tiny home that breathes just like the rest of us.

Be sure to be the first in line each day to see Vera’s Silver Bullet Tiny House for a special Top 5 Sustainable Lifestyle Practice Demo! We’ll see you there!

Making Art/Furniture/Fashion from your tiny house waste-stream!

There is very little waste at the Silver Bullet Tiny House build. The little that remains was recycled and reclaimed, up cycled and repurposed, a few examples here:

• Free horticulture palettes that stored building supplies all winter were repurposed for an outside vermicomposting shed to reclaim 60% of our organic waste (the other 40% goes into another composting pile):

Verma30

• NYTimes newspapers and bottled water containers left by workshop attendees were made into creative fashions:

REPURPOSED
Repurposed lumber scraps and found lumber used for basic construction workbench:

•Repurposed, repaired, reclaimed, recycled found objects from yard sales or free from my local UHaul “free cycle” area; see separate links for the stackable stools, the bar stool, gift boxes, and tray.

• More fashions made of rain screen, cedar breather and corrugated steel will be posted after the fashion show!!

North Shore Artists Advance Sustainability Through Fashion

Please come!!!

On October 25th you can purchase a gown, accessory, travel package, gift certificates to your favorite local vendors; have great food, meet new friends–a good time seeing some fabulous “up cycled/repurposed” fashions in this show and help raise funds for longwayhome.org (They build sustainably designed schools). (The gown on the far right is one of my designs).Screen Shot 2014-10-11 at 5.33.28 PM
