- n. Plural form of earthbag.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
The list of things you will be exposed to is broad: earthbags, straw bales, pallet trusses, passive solar, off-grid power, permaculture, cooking, and great vegetarian meals.
Most of the alternative building that I have seen is far safer on this score: straw bales, adobe, earthbags, rammed earth, and cob do not promote combustion.
