Since its inception, Concrete Ideas has used sustainable manufacturing techniques, conserving and recycling our resources.Our handcrafted concrete products incorporate approximately 50% recycled materials.Post-consumer materials include local and readily available 100% recycled glass, mirror and bottles from Virginia wineries.Post-industrial products such as silica fume, VCAS and blast furnace slag are used to strengthen the concrete as well as replace a portion of portland cement.Some of Concrete Ideas mix designs replace all of the portland cement.
