There are many factors to consider when selecting an environmental building material. Clients generally have varying priorities and place importance on different aspects.
For instance, some clients may prefer to use natural materials while others may prioritise sourcing locally-made products.
Following the ‘Reduce, reuse, recycle’ ethos, the best thing you can do for the environment is by making do with what you have or alternatively purchase a pre-loved product.
If you need to source a new product, we recommend asking suppliers these key lifecycle-based questions when weighing up your selection.
