Lehigh Hanson released a new bag design for Lehigh Cement’s EcoCemPLC. The redesign comes as part of the company’s ongoing commitment to reducing its carbon footprint and offering more sustainable options for its cement products.
“The new bag design and transition to EcoCemPLC is about more than aesthetics – it’s about clearly communicating the proven benefits of EcoCemPLC to sustainably minded customers,” said Alex Car, president of Lehigh Hanson’s Northeast Region.
Features of the refreshed packaging design for EcoCemPLC include the “reduced carbon footprint” icon, featured prominently in the new bag design to emphasize EcoCemPLC’s demonstrated carbon-reduction benefit: about a 10% reduction in CO2 emissions vs. ordinary portland cement.
The product is also now easily identifiable as a portland limestone cement, which contains about 10% more limestone content than ordinary Type I & II portland cement. EcoCemPLC can be employed for full-scale residential and commercial applications as an Earth-friendly cement option that doesn’t compromise consistency, versatility and performance, said Lehigh.
The newly designed EcoCemPLC bag will hit big-box stores and dealers in October.
