Straw is the sustainable alternative to cement

Modern cement is an ongoing disaster for our climate. Globally, cement production alone accounts for 5-10% of manmade CO2 emissions; where we don’t need it, we shouldn’t be using it.

In the UK we have more straw than we know what to do with – we could build at least half a million houses each year from surplus straw. And like trees, straw captures carbon when it grows.

Unlike trees, straw grows every year. Lock that straw up in a building for 200 plus years and we’re making a massive contribution to carbon capture, all without the need for complicated technology.
