Theres a product called glaster too. Might be worth finding out where it's made, cos if it's made on the other sie of the world, it's hardly ecological

Glaster is made in Wales by a company called Ty mawr, it looks quite smart too.

Me and a mate went down there to do a lime course ages ago and seen some of it, its basically lime render with crushed glass in it for decorative effect.

Products : glaster® | Tŷ-Mawr lime and green building products

tbh replacing plaster for an eco friendly product wont really have any impact on a build, if it is a serious eco build, i would look at using eco products around the rest of the build and just stick to plaster for the walls for ease.

Aint normal plaster eco friendly? Its all stuff dug from the ground, its not like there is any oil or plastic in it i suppose the only thing about it not being eco would be the process for making it.
