Carapace Rock Science, Inc. is committed to using the most environmentally conscious methods possible in all aspects of the business. Some examples towards these efforts are:

  •  All water used in the course of production is either used in the manufacturing process, or is collected, contained and reused for the next day’s production.  This recycling and reuse completely eliminates any potential runoff into Florida's delicate ecosystem.  Carapace Rock Science considers this just part of our fiduciary responsibility to our community and the environment.

  • The cardboard and other cushioning materials used for packing and shipping orders is all material that was slated to be thrown away.  Carapace Rock Science sought out and created partnerships with local businesses who did not have a recycling program.  These materials are collected from the businesses, which reduces the impact on our local landfills.  After deliveries, packing materials are collected, brought back to the production facility and reused again.

  • Nearly all of Carapace's lighting needs are supplied by natural sunlight during the day, even inside the production facility and office.  When conditions demand it, only highly energy efficient lighting is used.

  • Carapace Rock Science refrains from using harsh chemicals and solvents whenever possible, and focuses on the use of environmentally friendly alternatives.  Regardless, whenever any of these products are used, they are closely controlled, monitored, collected and disposed of properly.

  • Carapace Rock Science uses only concrete pigments derived from natural sources.  Iron oxide is the primary pigmenting ingredient for all colors.  Regardless, pigments are always carefully utilized and any residual waste is reused in later production.  The same is true for the concrete fiber reinforcement used to strengthen the products.

  • In addition, the Carapace manufacturing process has been streamlined to a point of efficiency where virtually all production waste (residual sand, aggregate and residual cured concrete) is recovered, broken down and reused in the next day's production.  Since none of the materials used in the manufacturing process are ever discarded, the result is a net savings for the company, and more importantly, the elimination of any environmental impact from the manufacturing process.  We have found that this is a rare trait in this and many other industries.
