URBANITE-a local resource with many uses
A short film by Paul McCreary, featuring Kyle Young
Urbanite is broken up concrete slabs, a recycled resource that is gaining in popularity around the world. The worldwide production of cement and concrete generates nearly 10% of all C02 in the atmosphere. Interestingly, using urbanite in ways shown here can help remove CO2 from the air and sequester it into the soil as carbon. Kyle Young, a permaculture farmer, demonstrates the many uses of Urbanite on his farm in Arivaca, Arizona.
