Concrete Block is Sustainable

Masonry products are the original green products, with concrete block masonry having a carbon footprint 66% smaller than that of cast-in-place concrete wall systems.  At manufacture, environmental impact is minimized because our concrete block is made in Scarborough, Ontario from a virtually inexhaustible supply of abundantly available raw and recycled materials.  During construction, block versatility helps minimize on-site waste and disposal.  Once constructed, the masonry lasts for decades without deterioration and need for maintenance.  At the end of its service life, block can be salvaged and re-used, or recycled in various forms.
