Sustainable and Environmental Construction Material Suppliers
Sustainability continues to grow and grow, getting more airtime and serious commitment than ever before. We’re absolutely dedicated to the cause and we want local tradesmen to get involved too. Switching out the traditional materials you use for more sustainable alternatives is one way that you can make a big change. Eco-bricks, recycled building materials and aggregates, geosynthetics, toxin-free foam insulation and reused assets are just a few examples.
Find hundreds of great products and techniques on these websites:
- Green Building Store
- Green Shop (ideal for paint)
- EcoChoice (ideal for timber)
- Self-Build (for education and help)
