What is an Earthship?: Earthships are designed to be independent and self-sufficient. This means an Earthship has little or no connection to the grid. The construction and design concepts use thermal mass, solar panels, rainwater collection, composting, and other natural approaches for minimizing the use of external resources.
Earthships are designed to be self-sustaining. They can provide their own electricity and potable water, treat their own sewage and grow their own food.

During this time of society, more and more people are becoming aware of benefits towards becoming self sustainable.

As an environmental-friendly clothing company (using only organic materials), Buddha Pants fully supports these positive footprint designs. The goal is to preserve our environment through any medium- in a way that it will be sustainable for our children and generations to come. We can essentially re-create the way we live just by simply acting on an ideological sense of “home”.
