Our products are made from 100% naturally occurring materials. We also take great strides to ensure that our products are 100% environmentally safe. Watching specific elements of how unique agricultural products perform in nature, Envirobond's research focused on developing a product line that was green in function and form. By mixing a powdered plant glue with crushed aggregate, Envirobond was initially created as an alternative to Asphalt for trails and pathways. This trailway product, when activated by water, hardened up and provided erosion resistance against washouts. Shortly after the success of the trailway product, it was noticed that contractors began using it as ajoint filler for large natural stone joints, such as flagstone. This niche market was uncovered as a tremendous opportunity.


Invisible Structures, Inc. offers a complete suite of stormwater management products which not only protect the environment, but actually enhance it. Their products process stormwater naturally, preventing erosion and soil migration, and cleaning water of contaminants. Their entire family of products is manufactured from some or all recycled plastics and can make help to impact LEED accreditation, with credits in Water Efficiency, Energy and Atmosphere, Materials & Resources, and Indoor Environmental Quality.


PolyPavement is LEED compliant and can contribute to attaining LEED Credits in many categories for pavement . Because PolyPavement incorporates natural, indigenous soil, and has a much higher SRI (Solar Reflective Index) than black asphalt, and can be up to 100% recycled, it is favored by many green builders and architects. In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, PolyPavement is non-toxic to plants and animals and it contains no known carcinogenic ingredients such as vinyl acetate or acetaldehyde. It has been tested and proven safe for sensitive aquatic life and does not leach into the ground water. PolyPavement may be applied in environmentally sensitive areas without worry or concern.
