Earth homes and how water can be saved in them

June 15, 2010

Preliminary research suggests that earth homes use about 270 litres of water per square foot of construction, about 1/4th of conventional brick mortar and RCC construction. Embodied water is thus much less in earth buildings.

Also these building harvest rainwater, recycle waste-water and have very little water footprint in their life cycle.

A good reason to build with earth.
