Would you live in a house made out of – uhm – shit?
Listen I get we need to be more concerned with the products we use on a daily basis and how they might effect our environment but isn’t this just getting a little too carried away?
What I am referring to goes by the trade name of EcoFaeBrick and believe it or not the bricks are made out of cow dung. Besides the stupid name who even thought that this would be a good idea in the first place?
Sure it might be 20% lighter and 20% stronger than real bricks but the idea that the walls holding up that roof over your head is made out of bovine excrement is just a bit much. Yes the green advocates are praising the idea because of the positive effect it has on things like clay mining and its negative impact on the landscape but isn’t this getting just a little carried away?
Mind you it sure gives a whole new meaning to the phrase shitting bricks.
