OTR/OTG is a multi-platform, lifestyle & adventure media brand dedicated to travel, discovery, sustainable design, and living well – with less.
More than another travel series, the program explores the planet for innovative ideas and then puts these ingenious techniques and technologies into practice on the OTR/OTG compound, a completely self-contained and self-sustained design/build project.
Appearing exclusively at ontheroadoffthegrid.com original video content consists of scripted episodes, short-form culture segments, and instructive “how-to” tutorials. These elements are aligned with extensive blog/vlog entries from our team of experts, an interactive sustainable-design resource center, and a constant stream of interactive Q&A.
This 21st century approach to the art of living resonates across many core beliefs and areas of interest:
- Life as an adventure
- Self reliance and sustainability
- A richer life through simplicity
- Living in closer harmony with the natural world
- The importance of experimentation
- Global innovation & inspired design
On the Road
The team travels around the world to seek out off-the-grid living experiments, interviewing experts, seeing ideas being turned into reality, and gathering the best and most innovative. With an eye for both the ancient and the modern, they absorb, document, and collect a record of the global movement toward sustainable design and living.
Off the Grid
The other side of the story applies ideas and techniques uncovered during the travels into the development of an off-the-grid living project. Viewers see how the discoveries made abroad can be applied to everyday life, establishing a sustainable living environment with many comforts, fewer bills, and a lower impact on the surrounding environment.
