Concrete Made Sustainably
Locally sourced, the land of fine sand.
Sustainable practices are paramount at Nood Co, from prototyping through to delivery, each step in the manufacture process has been modified with a sustainable view.
85% of Nood Co's concrete composition and packaging material is sourced from within Australia, including the finest sand grades and natural admixes, right through to recycled packaging.
All Nood Co products are manufactured with a zero VOC concrete composition, zero VOC colouring system and sealed in a food-safe, UV stable, extremely low VOC sealer. The final product is waxed in a pure natural beeswax polish, ensuring a 100% non-toxic, safe interaction for the end user.
Nood Co has created a unique blend of UHP concrete that uses around 96% less energy than that to create its ceramic equal. A ground breaking statistic.
Nood Co basin manufacture involves the use of multiple silicon molds and a handmade process. Machinery-aided manufacture has been avoided to ensure an extremely low embodied energy and pollution emission rate, whilst not compromising on efficiency and production output.
Nood Co products are manufactured and assembled in Australia and hence affect much lower rates of transport emission.
Nood Co consumes only the supplies and resources required to manufacture the end product. Nood's unique manufacture system creates a 97% affirmed product pass-through rate, ensuring a less than 3% waste rate.
