Concerns about climate change are central to the growing interest in sustainable building products and practices. Priorities are changing, with greater thermal efficiency and lower environmental impact at the top of everyone's list - both of which can be achieved through the use of more natural building products.
Back to Earth's environmental agenda
is based on a firm belief that the impact of UK house building on the environment can be dramatically reduced by increasing the use of natural building materials. As well as promoting products that will help bring about carbon emission reductions, Back to Earth is also committed to minimising its own carbon footprint.
The business operates out of old farm buildings reclaimed from encroaching dereliction. Its vehicles are run on bio-diesel and rainwater is harvested for the production of mortars. Recycled and natural materials are used where ever possible in the production of Back to Earth's own products.
