The award-winning Grand Designs Live hosted by Kevin McCloud is back, bigger, better and greener than ever as show organisers place a ban on all single-use plastic at the event. Since last year’s London show, the Grand Designs Live team will roll out their plastic free campaign in a bid to raise awareness about plastic pollution, encouraging visitors to make simple and sustainable lifestyle choices.

Alongside plastic cutlery, straws and bottles off-limits, the campaign also aims to provide environmentally conscious self-builders with advice on how to construct an eco-friendly project.

If you’re looking to lower your home’s carbon footprint or you’re undecided on which green products to use for your renovation project, here’s the top must-see eco-friendly attractions at Grand Designs Live.
