Something Good in the World extends children’s learning experiences in sustainable living to include the indoors as well as the outdoors by pioneering a new sustainability project called the Earth School EnviraPod Mobile Education Trailer. This consists of a small, zero-footprint mobile structure designed for completely off-the-grid, sustainable living. EnviraPods use eco-friendly building materials, renewable resources, solar power, rainwater catchment and gray water systems – all creating a working example of indoor sustainable living that will be incorporated into new learning experiences for children of all ages.
EnviraPod Mobile Educational Trailer Arrives
The Earth School EnviraPod is a natural complement to our use of organic gardening and backyard farming to bring alive the wonders of how to live in harmony with nature – and to teach children, teachers, and parents how they can integrate these concepts into their everyday lives.

Thank you to Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps for a donation of over 2,000 bottles of pure castille soap — the only product pure enough to be put into the EnviraPod’s greywater catchment system.
