Movie Info

Michael Reynolds is hardly the first architect to bring an environmental consciousness to his work, but few have followed the same path he has. Reynolds designs dwellings that are built from cast-off materials -- one of his buildings was primarily constructed from old beer cans, and he's created other homes from used tires, empty water bottles, and other materials that had been thrown away.

Audience Reviews for Garbage Warrior

Absolutely fascinating and a must see for government regulators who wonder how legislation impedes thinking outside the box once in awhile.

This documentary starts slowly, but I really warmed to the Garbage Warrior. And the buildings are sooo beautiful.
