With 23 Years of Sustainable Building Experience


Back to Earth is a natural building material supplier. We're not your typical builders' merchant though and instead work closely with our clients during the planning, designing and building phases of projects.

As a material supplier we partner with some of the world's leading natural building material manufacturers. Our intention is always to bring to our clients the very latest material innovations and offer expert technical support.

Where we really add value though is with our design consultancy. With years of building experience, we help to ensure our clients use the most effective material systems.


We do this by spending time reviewing their building plans, before making informed recommendations about the correct use of materials. 

In summary, if you are looking for more than just a builders' merchant, we might be the guys to talk to. 

If you'd like to get in touch to discuss your project, we'd love to hear from you. We're always happy to talk things through and share our ideas on how to make your sustainable building project a success.

Please do give us a call on 01392 861763. If you'd like to contact us via email, you can get in touch here.
