Off the coast of Honduras, on a small island called Utila, lives a guy called Shane. Shane has broken away from all the social restraints and has built his own house. He is now building his own garden. However he is doing it slightly different from most people — he uses cardboard boxes! This short film talks about Shane’s key concepts and tips on permaculture.

    Hi Shane,

    Thanks for the video. I found your low fossil fuel use inspiring. I also use cardboard in my garden, and recently I had a friend visit who commented that the glue used in cardboard contains Formaldehyde. I did some internet research and struggled to find much information on it. Is this something that you have heard? Does anyone have any information on this?
