5 Sustainable Materials for your Eco-Friendly Home

Have you ever thought of building your new stylized home in an environmentally friendly way?? Is constructing a house in an eco-friendly way with sustainable building materials possible?

The answer to this question is YES! You can build your dream home with sustainable building materials. Sustainable building materials are materials that do not cause any harm to the earth. Choosing sustainable building materials can be a difficult task, so here are the 5 Sustainable building materials that you can use to build your Eco-friendly house. 



This giant grass is a great sustainable building material that we can use to build our house. Bamboo generates only less construction waste compared to the standard building materials. It is well known for its lightweight, flexibility, and natural strength. Bamboo is an easily available material because it is a fast-growing grass (According to a study, It can grow up to 3 feet within 24 hours).



As we all know plastic doesn’t decompose on soil easily, so we can recycle and process the plastic wastes to use them as a building material. It is a cheap and reliable building material that we can use to construct our house. Giving a second chance to these plastics by recycling and reusing them in construction can free the landfill space and save energy. 


Reclaimed steel

Producing new steel requires a lot of energy; Instead of that, we can recycle the steel because steel is a recyclable product and it can save a lot of energy. Recycled steel won’t lose its strength when recycled so it can be durable building material. This recycled/reclaimed steel is best for roofing purposes because it is water-resistant and pest resistant. A large amount of water will be used in the production of steel, by choosing recycled steel you will be saving a large amount of water.


Reclaimed wood

Using reclaimed/recycled wood in constructing Eco-friendly homes allows us to use the wood resources efficiently. We can’t simply cut down trees to fulfilling our needs. We can use recycled wood to prevent cutting down of trees. But before using these recycled woods make sure that these woods are bug-free and metal-free. The properly chosen recycled wood has the same strength as the new wood.


Straw bales

It is an excellent soundproof material and is known for its insulation qualities. It can keep your indoors cooler in summer and vice versa in winter therefore it can maintain a pleasant indoor climate. It is also a cost-efficient material. On the other hand, it has some disadvantages like it can be used only in non-loaded bearing constructions., etc.

Help Niswarth – The Selfless reach more people and help the communities around India by donating an amount and contributing with a selfless gesture. We continue to strive for a better society and an earth-centric world.

We use wood, bricks, and concrete every day for constructing new houses; this causes the destruction of trees and the depletion of many resources for making bricks and cement. As an alternative, we can use these sustainable building materials to construct our dream green home. These sustainable building materials are stronger and more durable than the standard building materials used traditionally by humans. Living life with sustainable goals can cause less damage to the earth so that we can gift a better and healthy living place for our future generation.
