“This gem was inspired by Robin Greenfield a friend, activist, and warrior against waste. This little cabin is made from over 90% recycled materials and stuff that was left over or thrown away.”
“The house is over 90% foraged and scavenged materials. The sinks and toilets were discarded from people buying high end products for their new homes. The roof, tile, most PVC and wiring was left over from two recent builds. One is a home I built here made from shipping containers. The wood is the round part of teak that is considered trash by some and treasure by us. The cabin is surrounded by terrace gardens planted with a ton of food. It is a fusion of Eastern terraces and polyculture.”

“Thanks for being an inspiration and leading the way. If is wasn’t for you, I would have never set to goal to build a house out of stuff that is thrown away. You have shown me and the world (better than anyone else) how many resources we waste.”
I spent some time with Justin when I visited Costa Rica in spring of 2017 and he has become a dear friend. He is the creator of Saint Michael’s Sustainable Community and the Permaculture Country Club. The Robin Greenfield Recycled Cabin is located at Saint Michael’s Sustainable Community. Take a tour of the community with this video I produced while I was staying there:
Justin is a very genuine human being and someone that I respect greatly. What he’s doing in Costa Rica is extremely impressive and well thought out. If you get a chance to go to Costa Rica and stay in the Robin Greenfield Recycled Cabin on his property, I’d highly recommend it! Send me a picture of you in the cabin if you go!
UPDATE: I visited and stayed in the cabin in 2020. Here is a video:
