Is concrete the most destructive material on earth?

Concrete has given rise to modern life. It is so ubiquitous and takes so many forms that it might be easy to forget about. Yet now there is increasing pressure to change the way we use and make concrete.

As cities warm and flood, as biodiversity is reduced and as water becomes more scarce worldwide – part of the blame is increasingly placed on concrete, the seemingly invisible foundation for our world. Cheddar explains.

Thanks for dropping by! The views expressed in Aliran's media statements and the NGO statements we have endorsed reflect Aliran's official stand. Views and opinions expressed in other pieces published here do not necessarily reflect Aliran's official position.

Our voluntary writers work hard to keep these articles free for all to read. But we do need funds to support our struggle for Justice, Freedom and Solidarity. To maintain our editorial independence, we do not carry any advertisements; nor do we accept funding from dubious sources. If everyone reading this was to make a donation, our fundraising target for the year would be achieved within a week. So please consider making a donation to Persatuan Aliran Kesedaran Negara, CIMB Bank account number 8004240948.
