Asunto: International Straw Bale Registry

As of September 30, 2007, there are 1,315 entries in the International Straw
Bale Registry (http://sbregistry.greenbuilder.com). That's a good start, but
we now there are many other buildings around the world that could be listed.
So we're asking your help in entering your own straw-bale building(s) and
spreading the word to suggest that others list their building(s), too.

Greenbuilder.com, The Last Straw Journal, The Straw Bale Association of
Texas, and the Development Center for Appropriate Technology, along with a
number of regional strawbale organizations, are working together to build a
database of buildings constructed using straw bale.

The aggregate numbers will be useful in such things as lobbying insurance
companies, mortgage companies, building officials, and others, and will also
be useful in further popularizing SB to the general public worldwide. The
Registry will also act as a contact list for future research and performance
testing. There are also databases for mortgage lenders and insurance
companies (primarily in the U.S. and Canada)

Your listing can be held as private information or shared with the general
public. Your building can be listed as available open to the public for
visits or remain private. That's up to you!

worldwide. It will help to promote and expand the use of strawbale and
natural building around the globe!
