Climate idea

We can opt to build using clay rather than timber especially in Kenya where houses are mostly built with timber.

Nation: Building with clay: Its minimal environmental impact makes it perfect for creating eco-friendly buildings.

From ancient civilization crafting clay bricks to modern lean manufacturing processes,the journey of clay in construction has been one of evolution,innovation,and unwavering commitment to sustainability.while the image comes to mind when one hears of clay might be simple houses made with unrefined bricks,clay buildings can be as aesthetically pleasing and of high quality as those made of other materials such as stone.
Clays historical significance in construction dates back centuries with civilization across the globe harnessing it's malleability and durability.Clay,a humble natural resource that has been utilised by civilization throughout history,has emerged as a cornerstone of sustainable construction practices.its exceptional properties and minimal environmental impact make it a favoured choice for architects and developers striving to create eco friendly structures that stand the test of time.This is an idea I would want to s propose in Kenya so as to avoid cutting down of trees,this will automatically save our forests by a big percentage.

    Clay is one of the best environment-friendly building materials.

      Clay building materials are the best for they act as a buffer for indoor air humidity, due to it clay's porous surface.

        That's a good idea but I think both timber and clay are sustainable since they are all eco-friendly and renewable.

          @princess_nel_268 I doubt if timber is eco_friendly,it encourages more deforestation,especially I highlighted a country like Kenya where a big percentage of structures are made of timber and this situation of deforestation might leave the country in a state of despair now that there will be no controlled cutting of trees.please share how renewable it is I would like to learn kindly..
