Pollution has become a huge problem in our modern age. And it seems like every time we come up with a solution to halt one form, another type of pollution steps into the gap to start causing problems of its own. With water shortages and droughts across the nation, and the world, though, preserving the water table has become an important issue. Fortunately, we have a way to put a dent in the amount of pollution that sinks into the ground.
The True Power of Green Paving
Take a moment and ask how many pollutants are washed off our roads. Oils, gasoline, and countless liquids spilled during accidents. When it rains, all of those materials are washed off the road, and they make their way into the earth.
Green paving fixes that problem
With permeable paving, the water (and the spilled contaminants) are allowed to drain through the pavement itself. This traps the unwanted materials, filtering them out, and ensuring they don’t make their way into the groundwater. This also ensures there’s no standing water on the paving itself, which cuts down on the risk of slipping to users.
Lastly, the paving itself can be made from recycled materials and can be recycled at the end of its life, recycled and recyclable!
The question, of course, is how long will we wait before we take this solution, and put it to use?
