While traditional concrete creates a large carbon footprint, we use a variety of engineered mixes that contain various amounts of post consumer and post industrial recycled content. These ingredients also have the added benefit of actually helping to produce better concrete. In addition, most of our ingredients are produced nearby, and the sealer that we use for most projects produces nearly zero VOC’s (volatile organic compounds). We try to do our part to leave as small a footprint as possible. We re-use items whenever we can; we recycle all of our unused concrete; our shipping materials are recycled or re-used; we have eliminated wet grinding from most of our processes to save water, and we know that working green doesn’t mean we have to compromise the quality or artistry of our products.
While we acknowledge that there is no totally harmless, perfectly “green” material. Every act of human production drains the earth in some way. We have taken many steps to make our product a less harmful option than the alternatives.
