Tips for Using Concrete in an Environmentally Responsible Manner:

  • Use the recommended mix design proportions on the bag to mix the concrete
  • Use the correct strength mix to minimise waste
  • Do not add too much water – this will reduce the concrete strength
  • Mix just enough concrete (mortar or plaster) for your project
  • If you are building a house, make sure you design for optimal energy efficiency
  • Use good quality aggregates and potable water
  • Cure the concrete properly to get maximum durability
  • Do not waste water when cleaning
  • Dispose of your paper bags in a responsible manner Use local raw materials - this reduces the carbon footprint of the transport component
  • Recycle building rubble where possible
