Industry calls for concrete proposals for lunch
This just caught the eye of one BM reader from an industry grouping calling itself the Cement Sustainability Initiative.
In a recent brochure, the CSI, lauding how good for the environment it can be to concrete over vast tracts of woodland and greenbelt land for supermarkets etc, had this extraordinary claim to make:
“Concrete is the second most consumed product on the planet after water.”
BM’s priorities are clearly out of kilter, prefering, as it does, a slug of Chimay or a cheeky Crozes Hermitage over water anyday.
Concrete comes only a close fourth.
