Green Methods for Making Concrete Countertops

terra-sink GFRC (Concrete) Sink

Here at the Concrete Zen workshop we manufacture countertops by following green practices. All of our materials for molds are re-used, therefore we cut down on the amount of waste produced. We use recycled glass for aggregate within the countertops. We ad up to 50 % Reclaimed VCAS to the cement content of the admixes. All of the parts for the concrete mix are obtained locally around the greater Pittsburgh area. We use water based sealants and stains that do not have VOCs. --Elizabeth E.
