Sustainable Building Materials
Here at EnviroBuild we are passionate about sustainable living and helping the environment. This is why we specialise in sustainable building materials and environmentally friendly construction solutions, with minimal harm to the environment. The majority of materials we sell, including our packaging, come from recycled sources, which can be recycled again.
We are truly on an environmental mission; looking to supply products that offer real functional, plus sizable environmental benefits over traditional construction materials. To qualify our solutions to these high standards we look to ensure that materials sold have; a high recycled content & recyclability level, long working life, plus where possible, the manufacturing process incorporates environmentally beneficial best practices. This gives our products a much lower carbon footprint than their standard alternative. To go a step further, we also donate 10% of our profits to sustainable causes to help become a carbon negative business.
We are dedicated to quality. The products we supply are engineered to the highest standard, offering innovative and well designed solutions. In addition, they are fully backed up with long warranties to ensure you have complete peace of mind.
SUPPORTING SUSTAINABILITY INITIATIVES
From the beginning EnviroBuild has been dedicated to helping improve the world we live in today and the future. As well as supplying eco-friendly building materials, we also support sustainable initiatives which bring long lasting, high impact benefits to the environment, eco-systems and local communities.
Business is an important part of our world and can offer benefits far beyond shareholder value. We achieve this not only through the sustainable building materials we supply, but also by dedicating 10% of our profits to sustainable causes.
Currently we are supporting Rainforest Trust who protect endangered rain forests and species. Through purchasing large areas of forest and partnering with local communities, Rainforest Trust help protect the land. You can find out more about their invaluable work here and the projects we have funded below.

Red Panda Community Forest
Boasting dramatically diverse ecosystems, the eastern Himalayas encompass rich grasslands, subtropical rainforests, temperate broadleaf forests and rhododendron groves that ascend to alpine meadows. Due to its many microclimates and altitudinal gradients, a great variety of rare species such as the Red Panda and Chinese Pangolin call this area home.
While many parts of the eastern Himalayas have been degraded by ongoing deforestation for agriculture, parts of eastern Nepal remain surprisingly intact. Find out how Rainforest Trust are helping protect this region.PHOTO BY TAMBAKO THE JAGUAR / FLICKR CC
Missing Link in the Amazon
Home to the world’s largest tropical rainforest on Earth, the Amazon is legendary for its great biodiversity that contains millions of species. However, during the past few decades, nearly 20% of its lush forest has been lost, removing a staggering amount of habitat needed by the area’s unique wildlife.
Rainforest Trust and local partner Center for the Development of Indigenous Amazon (CEDIA) are working to protect the missing link that will create a combined 7.8 million-acre tri-national corridor safeguarding a massive swath of critical Amazon rainforest. Find out how Rainforest Trust are helping protect this region.
Cameroon Atlantic Rainforest
Shaggy rainforests, long snaking rivers and lush wetlands characterize Cameroon’s coastal Atlantic forests. Within this ecoregion sits the Douala-Edea Wildlife Reserve, created in 1932 and recently identified as one of the most important conservation landscapes in Central Africa.
The reserve’s forests are home to several threatened primates including Chimpanzees, Gabon Black Monkeies and African Forest Elephants. The reserve’s labyrinth wetlands and marine habitats are a haven for birdlife and threatened marine species.

North Borneo Great Forests
The rainforests of Sabah on the Malaysian portion of the Southeast Asian island of Borneo are among the most biodiverse in the tropics. However, the area’s numerous endemic and endangered species are at high risk due to habitat destruction caused by deforestation and agricultural conversion. To combat this threat, the government of Sabah has pledged to increase the extent of protected areas from a current 23 percent of land area to 30 percent, safeguarding nearly one million acres of rainforest over the next four years.

The vast majority of Sumatra’s rainforests have been rampantly destroyed in recent decades for growing swaths of oil palm and rubber plantations. With the growing demand for palm oil, what little forest remains is highly susceptible to deforestation for expanding plantations.
The largest surviving block of rainforest in Sumatra is called the “Leuser Ecosystem”. This 6.4-million-acre tropical wilderness is the last place on Earth where the Critically Endangered Sumatran Rhinoceros, Sumatran Orangutan, Sumatran Elephant and Sumatran Tiger are all found within one ecosystem; the only place in the world capable of supporting the survival of all four species.
