24 Eco-Friendly Houses Made With Natural Materials

In the last decade, eco products have become all the rage as people make an effort to be kinder to the environment, as well as their wallets. Some folk however, aren’t happy to stop at solar panels on their roofs, or a hybrid car. Instead they’ve pulled out all the punches in the name of eco living and built some truly innovative houses, which are entirely, or mainly, made out of natural and eco-friendly materials. The possibilities in what you can use to make a house are endless. Wood and stone are obvious examples, but recycled glass bottles and car tires are also great for insulation. Take a look at these examples, all of which are a feat of architectural brilliance.
