Ironside Stone Works Stone and the Environment
As a natural product, Natural Stone is inherently earth-friendly. Natural stone currently offers many attractive, environmentally friendly attributes, including an enduring life-cycle, durability, ease of care and maintenance, recyclability, and quarry and manufacturing best practices.
Using natural stone shows that we take responsibility to care for the earth by actively striving to preserve, restore or improve the natural environment. Conserving resources, preventing pollution, and minimizing waste are some ways the stone industry is working to be eco-friendly through green building.
The quarry operates to minimize the land disturbed and still maintain a quality product for their customers. As an area is depleted of resources, it is turned back into an environment similar to its surroundings.
