The Sustainable Products for the Future range is manufactured with up to 40% coloured glass aggregate. The environmental benefits of these more eco-friendly, recycled building materials are enormous as natural resourced aggregates such as sand and metal dust, are replaced in manufacture by a potential landfill product. Due to the cementitious value of the finely crushed recycled glass, cement usage is reduced by 10% – therefore CO2 emissions are lowered when our environmentally friendly building materials are produced. When you decide to purchase the superior products from Island Block & Paving, you are not only guaranteed to get a great price on your building materials, but also peace of mind for having chosen a more sustainable product.
