At the conclusion of the recent COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, the UN Secretary General António Guterres announced: “Our fragile planet is hanging by a thread…..We are in the fight of our lives.”
And while his comment were directed at world leaders, the sentiment is there for us all to share – we each have our part to play, no matter how small, in implementing as many sustainable measures as possible in our lives to help tackle climate change and the harm being down to the planet.
And that’s why here at Permeable Driveways, we are proud to offer sustainable solutions to customers in the driveways they select from our range of services. In all our work, we have a sharp focus on sustainability and eco-friendly products.
Our driveways, particularly our resin bound driveways, are designed to alleviate any risk of flooding.
Mixing the aggregate with the resin prior to laying the driveway in our resin bound designs means the finished product remains water permeable, allowing surface water to rain away efficiently and avoiding the likelihood of any flooding on your property.
We are not overloading drains and waterways with excess water which, in turn, wears away land, destroys natural habitats and, therefore, eco-systems…the knock-on effect to our natural environment is endless.
Andrew Parnell, Permeable Driveways MD, said: ‘It might seem like a small move in the right direction, insignificant in the scheme of things, but by focusing on sustainable options, implementing them as widely as possible, we are reducing the pressure on our planet one step at a time.
‘If we all took small steps, the impact would grow and ultimately help halt the decline in our planet’s health. We are proud of our sustainable services and try to consider the environmental impact of everything we do as a company.
‘What other steps could you take in your home and business life to be more environmentally aware?’
