Environmentally Friendly Straw Houses For Sale In Britain

But designers at the University of Bath in the U.K. say not by the hair of their chinny chin chins. They're building houses made of straw on sale for the first time ever on the open market. They say the material is so efficient it would offer savings of up to 90 percent on energy bills. So huff and puff on that, you Big Bad Wolf. It's MORNING EDITION.
