Description of EcoPod Holidays
We are a small company trying to change the way we interact with the natural resources available to us all.
The concept behind the EcoPod is to provide a beautiful warm living space which has all the comforts of a house and built from 50% waste materials.
The Eco Pod is a metaphor of the world of to come. An example for everyone to explore the reality of a less wasteful world.
EcoPods can provide human habitation equal to and in many cases superior to modern buildings which have little regard to wastage in their construction, and even less in their usage of energy day to day.
We realised it is time to use our resources in a sustainable way.
It is time to forget the path towards growth and profit. It is time to start reducing our consumption of energy and blatant wastage of resources.
It is our goal make a sustainable world for our children to live in.
We have combined the essential features of a camping holiday with private facilities inside the EcoPods to relax in comfort.
