Easy Eco Build

Description

The Easy Eco Build system draws upon long established production and construction techniques. Hemp production lowers greenhouse gas emissions (hemp growing is a large consumer of carbon dioxide). Raw materials coming from hemp growing store carbon and take part in fighting the greenhouse effect.

Easy Eco Build contributes to:
Climate demands (fighting CO2 releases)
Saving of fossil-fuel resources
Use of renewable raw materials
Conservation of water resources
Reduction in fuel costs
Healthier living environment
