Company Gives Old Cement Bags a New Life

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The U.S. is the third largest consumer of concrete in the world, behind India and China. It's a simple mix of water, sand, aggregate, sometimes small amounts of additives or air, and typically 10 to 15% cement.

Concrete Mode is a small craft company that has found a way to repurpose some of those bags.
