The Last Straw is a media outlet to share and explore ideas of a better world through the lens of building methods and materials. In the face of climate crisis and increasing alienation from each other and the Earth, we believe another world is possible. For over 25 years, The Last Straw was the only international journal dedicated to natural building and ecological design. It was started as a collective effort by straw bale builders Matts Myhrman and Judy Knox in Tucson, Arizona in 1992. Since then twenty-four editors, three publishers, and countless contributors have continued the long conversation about alternative ways of building and living.
