The Homelessness Project Uses Discarded Items to Provide Housing

This eco-friendly homelessness project takes on two social justice issues at once. Gregory Kloehn's Homeless Homes Project creates mobile homes for homeless people out of garbage and other discarded materials. This way people in need of shelter have a place to live while the environment also benefits.

The mobile homes' construction materials come from illegal street dumping, commercial waste and extra household items. Each house looks a little bit different, but all are on wheels. Upgraded versions include kitchen and bathroom areas.

The California based artist behind this homelessness project aims to bring together trash with creative people to make mobile, innovative and sturdy shelters for the homeless. The recycled aspect also plays into finances, as it is cheaper to build this way.
