Hemcrete. Carbon negative building material made from hemp, lime, water


Good looking, environmentally friendly and 100% recyclable, Hemcrete® is as versatile as it is sustainable. It can be used in a mind-boggling array of applications from roof insulation to wall construction to flooring. Hemcrete® is waterproof, fireproof, insulates well, does not rot [when used above ground] and is completely recyclable. In fact, the manufacturers say that demolished Hemcrete® walls can actually be used as fertilizer!

It’s been available in the UK for years, yet is expensive in the US due to our absurd ban on growing hemp, something which has been legal in other countries for decades.
