The Akron Sustainer is a project involving an 8 x 20 foot shipping container built from reused and repurposed materials, acting as an educational hub for residents of Akron, promoting sustainability and green living. The Sustainer plans to feature eco-friendly materials such as a solar panel, vegetative roof, rainwater catchment system, and a living wall, to name a few. Workshops, hands on experiments, and displays will be provided through the programming of the project to educate, engage, and empower residents on various sustainability topics. The Sustainer currently resides in Akron’s beautiful Cascade Valley.
