Rammed earth construction is gaining in popularity with home owners seeking to build Eco-friendly. Rammed Earth Construction is basically using the dirt under your feet, or from a local quarry to build a wall, house, shop, or anything else you can think of. Its a great concept since it doesn’t require brick, wood, quarried stone, etc to be used and transported. Everything is local!
Hay is obviously used for several things, but to clean up our oil spill? I never thought of it as a way to accomplish this, but several farmers have. You can not get much greener of a clean-up than this. It works by distributing the hay across the oil spill. The oil then sticks to the hay. The great part is hay floats. So once the oil sticks to it all you need to do is pick it up.
