Audubon International – the environmentally focused non-profit organization offering members numerous certifications and conservation initiatives to protect the areas where we all live, work, and play – is proud to announce Michigan-based sustainable surfacing company Porous Pave as its newest corporate sponsor.
Porous Pave joins such longtime Audubon International sponsors as United Airlines, epar and Water IQ Technologies to support the organization’s ongoing efforts to help lead golf courses and clubs, hotels, resorts, municipalities, private communities, and businesses establish and build on sustainable best practices through their various certification programs.
“As a non-profit organization, we truly value our sponsorship partners, and welcome Porous Pave to the family,” says Christine Kane, CEO. “The sustainable practices at the heart of their business model is a perfect fit for our ongoing mission to help businesses and communities who own or manage properties make their operations as environmentally sound as possible.”
Since 2007, Porous Pave has transformed over 23 million pounds of scrap tires into over 7 million square feet of aesthetically pleasing permeable paving solutions. Their permeable solutions are incredibly strong, ADA compliant, slip-resistant, and flexible/durable enough to withstand freeze/thaw cycles and expansive soil. Porous Pave products excel in applications such as paths/trails, tree surrounds, golf course cart paths and bunker liners and numerous other uses.
“We are very excited to work with Audubon International and share their vision to create sustainable environments,” says Matt Lamb, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Porous Pave Inc. “ Porous Pave’s foundation is grounded in the conversion and recycling of scrap tires into environmentally friendly paving solutions. Our products offer best-in-class permeability along with amazing durability and filtering properties. We are proud that our permeable options with paving materials help create a greener tomorrow by allowing drainage back into the soil profile. We look forward to partnering together with Audubon International as we introduce and educate their members on our permeable paving solutions.”
