Mississippi once had a flourishing lumber industry. Today the sawmills are running again, but now producing something much more sustainable. ACRE by Modern Mill is a sustainable new building material that can replace wood in nearly all applications. ACRE offers all the conveniences of composites with all the warmth and beauty of real wood. ACRE is made without harming a single tree, in a zero-waste environment. On this show, we'll discuss: Why green building is finally poised for take off; The promise of new material sources including agricultural waste; COP26: the opportunity and the challenges; What will it take to extend the physical and mental health benefits of biophilic design from a niche solution to a mainstream / accessible one; opportunity zones / quality job creation in rural America.
