Yet another unique find in northern New Mexico is drawing attention. It’s where the natural particles of earth, meet the waste of manmade material. It’s not a landfill. It’s a village of what are called ‘Earthships’ located right outside of Taos.
Earthships are part of sustainable tourism gaining popularity everywhere. Visitors are seeking an immersive experience that has a low impact on the environment and local culture. Our next New Mexico True Story promotes Earthships and sustainable tourism.
The Tourism Department needs your help in launching our Earthships True Story in February. We want to promote your destination in our upcoming round up of tangible tourism experiences with a focus on sustainability. Do you have a sustainable destination like these?
- Eco-conscious casitas built from recycled fly-ash that blend into the natural landscape at El Monte Sagrado Living Resort and Spa.
- Traditional Pueblo agricultural experiences such as planting a seed in the Resilience Garden at Indian Pueblo Cultural Center.
- Farm-to-table dining shaped by relationships with local farmers at the Love Apple.
