ThisÂ freeÂ eBook, edited byÂ PÃ¤ivi SimiÂ andÂ Outi Toumela, is the main publication of the long term project of the same title, taking place inÂ Southern FinlandÂ andÂ EstoniaÂ from 2009 to 2012.
The focus of the project lies in raising awareness and spreading knowledge on the use of healthier materials as well as on the environmental importance of using local materials.
From the back-cover:
What are natural materials? Basically, every material is originally natural. Even humans are composed of pure natural materials. We need better definitions like ecological materials, local materials, renewable resources, organic materials, and so on. We also need recyclability as well as a free flow of information. Everything we do or consume locally also affects globally. We must not forget that we have options.
