The Last Straw Journal covers important developments in the natural building world that translate to a reduced impact on the natural environment.  Our mission is to inform and inspire people to build more consciously and with foresight toward future generations.  We fulfill our mission by providing in-depth stories from around the world about people who are reviving and pushing the boundaries of building materials and systems and the impact they have on cultures and societies.
