I'd like to spend today's post discussing an awesome product offered at Green Conscience: American Clay. Full disclosure: I really dig this product. The benefits of plastering your walls with American Clay instead of painting them are almost too great to ignore.
To begin with, clay is 100% natural. That may seem like a given fact, but it's crucial. Unlike some other wall covering options, clay is non-toxic and VOC free. The real strength of the product, though, comes in the variety of functions it performs after it is applied. One of the coolest aspects of American Clay is that it remains an active part of your living space. Clay acts as a temperature and humidity buffer, and by naturally absorbing and releasing moisture, it helps to regulate and moderate environmental changes in any room. For this reason, it is especially effective in bathrooms and other high-humidity applications. Walls finished with clay plaster are warm to the touch in winter, and also cool in the summer.
