ALMERE, NETHERLANDS - Some people just like to stick to the basics of life. That's the goal of a new Dutch town that's looking to go completely off the grid. The company behind it is called RegenVillages and they specialize in harnessing technology to create self-sustaining neighborhoods.

We're talking about everything from growing their own food to generating their own energy, even managing waste locally and recycling water.

The most important resource they may have is money; the villages are being financed from wealth funds focused on finding alternatives to fossil fuels.

If you want to live in one of these earth-friendly communities, you'll need a visa and some patience. Groundbreaking on the first 100 homes isn't scheduled until later this year in the Netherlands.
