Earthbag building solutions

EarthKaya is dedicated in providing low cost, low impact, earth bag building solutions in South Africa.
Less time, less impact, less cost.

In a world where organic agriculture is more expensive than traditional crops, solar panels are often costly to install and electric cars are inconvenient to run, many people may be reluctant to ‘go green’ at home. However, imagine a process of home building that is more economical than traditional methods, equally as sound structurally, well-insulated, sound-absorbent, releases less CO2 emissions than brick homes and reduces the carbon footprint by 70%.

EarthKaya does just that by creating structures using locally produced earthbags which are coated with small amounts of cement or with an environmentally-friendly plaster such as adobe or special lime after building.

Earthbag homes are resistant to wind, sun and water vapour, remain cool in summer and warm in winter, are non-corrosive and rot-free, meaning no pesky termite problems.
