Green Building Materials
Elephant Structures is a leading installer of metal buildings and a premier vendor and supporter for green building materials and eco-friendly steel. As a sustainable resource, steel offers superior strength and durability, leading it to become the ideal building material for structures across the world.
Why Green Building Materials Matter
Meeting the demands of our daily lives leaves many of us little time for ecological matters. Yet the more resources we use, the more harm we inflict upon our planet. That is why steel is the logical choice when it comes to building materials — it leaves less of a mark on the planet than other materials.
Steel uses less energy and emits less CO2 than other building materials such as aluminum. Choosing a metal structure made from eco-friendly, green building materials like steel ensures you’re doing your part in the green movement. Recycling steel also keeps products such as tin cans out of landfills, putting these materials back into use for a wide range of applications. Recycling steel helps conserve the raw materials used to create this strong substance, which include iron, coal, and limestone.
North America recycles steel more than any other material, including paper, plastic, aluminum, and glass combined. Our country has a long history with steel, and we have made efforts to ensure that it is a legacy that endures and leaves a better home for our children.
Go Green with Elephant Structures
Working with sustainable building materials is not so much a selling point for Elephant Structures as it is one of our core values. We want to provide excellent structures that will last while making a positive impact on the earth. That is why all of our structures use steel over aluminum or wood. You would have to use so much more wood to have a structure as sturdy as a steel one.
It is a common misconception that structures made from green building materials cost more. From the beginning, Elephant Structures has held the ideal of offering affordable metal buildings online to our customers. We provide you with the strength of steel and the promise of sustainability at a price you can afford.
