Concrete is an indisputably great material for construction projects. It is strong and durable when installed correctly. However, concrete contributes to greenhouse emissions. By some estimates, cement (a component of concrete) can account for about 8% of all human-made CO2 emissions. Additionally, concrete surfaces contribute to water runoff due to its low porosity.
In contrast, ModuTile interlocking permeable paver is made from post-consumer HDPE plastic. We repurpose plastic that may otherwise end up in landfills. The paver’s purpose is to help create a stable, durable gravel or grass base. After installed, it is permeable, so it helps reduce material and water runoff. Depending on how it is installed, it can serve as a water retention method for your property.
