Go Green with Sandstone – Buy Green, Buy Local, Use Local

Basket Range Sandstone extracts sandstone from the Adelaide Hills. We shape and cut the stone to size in the quarry itself. No transport, no carbon miles. Our sandstone has a high thermal inertia to insulate against external temperature variations. Less cooling, less heating, Saves energy, saves money.

Here are some other great environmental benefits of building with sandstone.

  • Very low embodied energy (Energy used to create the product)
  • Very little waste (We use all the stone we extract)
  • No chemicals or poisons used to cure/alter our stone

By using local natural sandstone you can do your part caring for the earth, by supporting a local company actively trying to preserve and improve our natural environment.

Next time you consider using a product think about the amount of energy consumed in it’s production and transport. A local company supplying natural products improves our economy and brings us closer to a clean, green future.
