US Hemp Building Association Pushes Green Building Industry Forward

By Jean Lotus

The small-but-mighty US Hemp Building Association has had an outsized impact on the emerging hemp building industry in the United States after only three years in existence. 

Along with the ordinary trade association activities of hosting educational events and providing member resources, the group has kicked open the doors of hemp building in the US by moving forward with approval in US building codes for hemp + lime insulation (also known as “hempcrete”).

“So much [has been] achieved by USHBA in such a short period of time,” Lori Daytner of New Castle, PA-based DON’s Services, builders of the Project PA Hemp Home told Let’s Talk Hemp in an email. “Clear strategic planning, laser-precise execution, and plain old hard work have set the foundation for this industry which will benefit so many with healthy and truly green building, local commodity production and local supply chains, job creation, and so much more,” she added.
