The house that hemp built

Construction is responsible for a huge environmental footprint including a lot of landfill waste. According to the EPA's The Advancing Sustainable Materials Management: 2014 Fact Sheet full report shows:
  • 534 million tons of C&D debris were generated in the United States, in 2014—more than twice the amount of generated municipal solid waste.
  • Demolition represents more than 90 percent of total C&D debris generation, while construction represents less than 10 percent.
So if you plan to build a house or remodel your office, require the contractor recycle.

But people may not often think of the impact of the materials that make the house. Cement has a large carbon footprint. This house was built with hemp. No, you can't smoke it and I wouldn't recommend burning it down to get a high.
