Sustainability image


Environmental responsibility is a priority at Carolina Ceramics Brick Company. That's why our manufacturing facilities meet or exceed state and federal environmental regulations. We are committed to always improving our manufacturing process, thereby reducing environmental impact. Just a few of our earth-friendly practices include:
  • Using rainwater, run off water and recycled water in brick making
  • Recycling clay and bricks that don't meet our quality standards
  • Using high-efficiency, state-of-the-art natural gas kilns
  • Recycling heat from kiln cooling zone
  • Complete reclamation of clay mining lands
Our products are just as environmentally-friendly as our manufacturing practices. Brick is one of the greenest building materials available because:
  • It's made from clay and shale, two of the most abundant natural resources. It requires no maintenance and lasts for thousands of years.
  • It's an excellent insulator that conserves energy.
  • It's fireproof, insect proof and water resistant.
  • It's completely recyclable.
