Manufactured from 100% recycled plastic bags, effectively keeping millions of non-degradable bags out of public landfills. Because it can be filled with natural land cover like grass, it helps reduce the “Heat Island Effect”, where higher city temperatures result from non-permeable surfaces like asphalt and concrete absorbing instead of reflecting the sun’s energy. This is important because the higher city temperatures increase air pollution levels, and heat-related illness and fatalities, and put extra pressure on our energy generation network. Ecoraster’s® environmentally-sustainable permeability allows surface water to soak through the soil and plants, which do an excellent job of filtering out pollutants, and therefore helps maintain ground water quality and avoid environmental problems caused by storm water runoff. By providing a solid structure for soil, Ecoraster® prevents soil compaction, further decreasing storm water runoff and preventing soil erosion.


The installation of TrueGrid safeguards from erosion due to vehicle traffic, pedestrian traffic, rainfall, and flooding waterway currents. TrueGrid holds your filler material in place preventing displacement and interblending. The savings from constant repairs to an eroded environment and from the replacing of paving material is valuable to your company’s bottom line. However, the saving from more wear and tear to the environment is the true benefit of using TrueGrid as a paving solution.
