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.
This book Promoting Natural Materials is a symbiosis of traditional, economical and recyclable old knowledge and materials with constantly developing know-how and creativity. As a project, ProNatMat is also an adventure to the world of natural materials in Southern Finland and Estonia in 2009–2012. A wide spectrum of views and thoughts on natural materials becomes available through these 27 articles from experts in the field.
