building insulation and decorating materials

You are here

What we build with, how it was made, how healthy it is for us and the planet, are questions worth asking.

Some of the materials in your local Builders Merchant and DIY store have good green/ eco credentials, some less. The suppliers below specialise in building materials that are produced with low environmental impacts.
