The COMET project
My friend Mariah has been working on a really cool project. She has been renovating and old trailer as an example of a sustainable way to live. When she finishes she will tour the country with it talking about the process and teaching as she goes. She says it best in the first paragraph from her about page:
"The COMET (Cost-effective, Off-grid Mobile Eco Trailer) is an exercise in sustainability and small space living. It is an educational tool for children and adults alike. She is a DIY guide for others wanting to pare down and have little to no negative impact on the environment, other humans, and themselves. She is a preservation of incredible design of the past meshed with the essential design of the future."
Mariah has been working on one of her trailers in the same spot where my house was born, in an old firehouse in Worcester. Check out her site and if you have unused building materials, get in touch. She can use them!
