The Eco House is a roof garden used to grow cotton, bamboo and reeds. It has a machine that collects waste to make compost as an alternative to soil. The machine drops off the compost in the 4 sections which grows bamboo, cotton and reed/papyrus. These can be used to make affordable clothes and furniture for the less fortunate.
