LOOKING FOR A HEALTHIER ALTERNATIVE TO TRADITIONAL BUILDING MATERIALS? THEN HEMPCRETE IS THE MATERIAL FOR YOU!
There’s a little home in Australia that seems like nothing more than an ordinary house. What makes it stand out is the fact it’s built with hempcrete. What is hempcrete, you ask? It’s a building material made from a mixture of hemp, lime, and water.
As a building material, it is non-toxic, it works well as an insulator and it balances humidity. Also, hempcrete is pest proof, meaning it can deter rodents and insects, and it is known to be durable enough to withstand earthquakes. So next time you’re planning on building a house, try hempcrete.
Hemp is a very old building material that has been used for hundreds and hundreds of years, but after the various conspiracies to knock it out of the market have suddenly subsided, hemp seems to be having a resurgence and I certainly believe it’s a material for the future. – Michael Leung
