Reducing embodied carbon, storing carbon, and reversing climate change with biogenic materials like straw

Here is a short video we made for San Diego’s Sustainable Building Week 2021 about how biogenic materials – such as straw – not only reduce the carbon emissions associated with construction, they can even trap and store carbon in buildings, helping to reverse climate change.

Running April 12 -16, 2021, Sustainable Building Week highlights local organizations going above and beyond in sustainability and improving our built environment. For more info and links to all the events, check out the website.
