Going Green with Perlite
Rooftop Gardening with Perlite
By mixing horticultural perlite and peat moss together, growers can produce rooftop gardens that give back to the environment without the weight of normal soil. Additional advantages are that perlite is lightweight, doesn't deteriorate, retains water and plant food, chemically inert, completely sterile, safe and easy to use.
Earthbag Roundhouse Building with Perlite
Perlite is a top choice for building earthbag roundhouses because its R-value of 2.7 per inch. 15? provides R-40 walls all around. That’s roughly double a superinsulated house. Even the tiniest heater would keep a small roundhouse warm if you have adequate roof and floor insulation.
