Congratulations on the recent construction of your Earthship in Huntington, Vermont.

In light of growing threats posed by man-made climate change, your decision to create a home that is nearly one hundred percent sustainable is truly admirable. By using natural, everyday materials you are creating a habitat that works in unison with the environment, rather than against it. Instead of leaving old tires, bottles and cans to lie in waste, your home puts them to valuable use. The nation is in serious need of more forward thinking individuals such as you.

Again, congratulations on your Earthship. I hope you enjoy living in your new home and continue to be a shining example of how people can live more sustainably.

Sincerely, Bernard (Bernie) Sanders, United States Senator
