Brick sustainability: Why is it a consideration for building projects?
We recommend using lime-based mortar rather than concrete in the bonding process. Not only does it allow buildings to last longer but bricks with cement-based mortar are not recyclable. If you hit the wall with a sledgehammer all you get is bricks and mortar, not piles of broken bricks. This allows bricks to be both salvaged or recycled to create new bricks.
