Earth-friendly:
Our choice to use a freight container for our training center is ecological and practical. The basis of everything we do is founded on recycling. The center will use an eco-stove to train for healthy cooking, dry-flush toilets with Sanergy for waste recycling, solar lighting, rain water collection, and abandoned tires as furnishings.
