“EcoRock” from Serious Materials is a much awaited product to replace conventional drywall.This is yet another award winning green building product that has been creating news even before its arrival.

Serious Materials is currently accepting orders for EcoRock, and trying to work on their back log. If you are planning a remodel or a construction job soon, I advice to get in line. You can request for a sample directly by calling the company, but I could not locate a dealer yet.

It is no surprise that this product got the recognition from Popular Science last month. The production of EcoRock takes 80% less energy than conventional gypsum board. EcoRock is made using 80% post-industrial recycled waste, including waste from steel and cement plants—with no gypsum. This also outperforms all other mold resistant drywall by 50%. No harsh anti-fungal chemicals are used on its surface or within its core.

This product can be recycled at the end of its life, or can be safely disposed of in landfills unlike gypsum.

Like they say, it is a true ecolution!
