North Kesteven Council have constructed affordable, sustainable houses from straw.
These houses effectively act as a carbon sink and therefore have a negative carbon footprint. They do not use cement in construction. Cement and concrete production accounts for almost 8% of global greenhouse gas emission.
The majority of the materials in the houses can be sourced locally,these are well insulated, practical and environmentally sound solutions to affordable housing.
