The first portion of the Creative Animal Tour is officially complete!

The Creative Animal tour influenced countless people across the United States to ponder how they could live more sustainably on a daily basis. Whether they were inspired to downsize their home, or simply reduce their impact by managing their electricity usage, water consumption, plastic waste; tour attendees walked away having seen practical solutions to many problems that face modern Homo sapiens today.

Though we didn’t meet our goal of one million people on leg one, we did have some impressive numbers:

– 50,000+ visitors to tour our tiny home & hear our message

– Over 50 programs held at universities, museums, zoos, and festivals

– We covered over 13,000 miles, 29 states, and 1 Canadian province

– Documented our journey through surveys and on film and captured a snapshot of America’s views on sustainability

We are currently working hard to create the next portion of this project. When it’s ready, we’ll want to share it with as many people as possible to help conserve and protect our natural world through our daily actions.

Where We’ve Been

TINY HOME

WELCOME TO OUR MOBILE METAPHOR – THE EVERGREEN TINY HOME

This is more than just a tiny-home on-wheels. It’s more than just our tour-bus. Or even our living quarters, office, or studio. This structure is at the cross-roads of being a dynamic art installation, a traveling museum exhibit, and a personal residence where it’s occupants invite the public in – to have a conversation.

These are rare things today’s world. Not only is does this project involve something private in a public setting (a home), but it also allows for the type of conversations we have in our homes to be had in public.

To date, Tim and Steph have invited over 15,000 people into their home. And regardless of race, religion, sex, or political stance – they have used this tiny home as a mobile metaphor for the tiny home (planet) that we all share – and had conversations about how we can all live, work, and play – more sustainably in that home.
