Palmetto Brick Announces Environmental Program

June 5, 2003
Palmetto Brick Co. recently announced the launch of its Keeping Our Community Green Program in an effort to promote brick, a 100% environmentally safe and recyclable building material. With the vast use of raw materials within the Palmetto Brick manufacturing process, the organization incorporates the necessary steps to ensure that it is promoting a truly ‘green’ finished product. Palmetto Brick, which produces more than 100 million brick per year, is an environmentally conscious company that utilizes a high percentage of recycled raw materials to produce a 100% recyclable product. The new program was created in an effort to continue the promotion of brick as the building material of choice for those striving to preserve our planet through environmentally conscious efforts. “Since our main raw material resource is the clay we pull from the river banks, we truly believe in using recycled raw materials throughout our entire brick manufacturing process from start to finish,” said Andy Rogers, vice president of sales and marketing.
