A professor in Texas is going to live in a dumpster for one year to prove how easy sustainable living can be.

"Professor Dumpster" sold off everything he owned in order to do the experiment.  Considering the dumpster is around 1% the size of a typical American living space, it's probably good that he won't have much to move in.

The project will go through three phases, starting as a camping site then turning into a standard living space with appliances.  Finally the dumpster will end up as a space capsule, you know . . . just in case he wants to launch into space.

Good luck 'Professor Dumpster", we hope that no tired trash man mistakenly takes your new home to the dump.
