Discuss how porous pavements help eliminate stormwater and preserve trees. The current generation of pavement is extremely flexible, highly porous, non-toxsic, self-cleaning, and made from recycled tires and stones. It is available in 77 colors and comes in four hardness levels ranging from a hard, vehicular version to a soft, playground version that meets up to ten-foot critical fall height protection. Trails, sidewalks, tree surrounds, courtyards, playgrounds, public spaces, green roofs, blue roofs, and more can be paved with this material. It eliminates stormwater runoff and achieves ADA compliance in all weather conditions.
