Paving stones for walkways and patios should be beautiful – but they also need to be practical, durable, and affordable. And what if they happened to be eco-friendly enough to qualify for LEED certification credits?
Greenstone is a Georgia-based company that turns the waste material from countertops into high-performance recycled granite pavers. Creating an average granite countertop results in up to 400 lbs. of waste material, which Greenstone diverts from landfills to create paving stones. Greenstone repurposes a staggering 40,000 lbs. of granite each week from local countertop fabricators in the Atlanta area.
Greenstone’s natural granite pavers are available in light, dark, and mixed colorations in a variety of standard and custom shapes. They’re three times stronger than concrete and require zero maintenance. Greenstone pavers have a textured finish that provides good traction even when wet, and they can be installed over an existing concrete slab or patio. They are even suitable for vertical use as exterior cladding.
