Save a tree, shred a tire and build

With international patents in place, we are now producing 93%, recycled construction blocks from tire shreds and waste cements to substitute lumber, steel and concrete in commercial and residential construction.

Echo Blocks are used for permeable hardscapes, roof terraces, green roofs and for replacing wood blocking in roof systems.

Currently undergoing certified testing at a Miami Dade test lab to build hurricane shelter rated housing. These blocks save trees and reduce the number of tires that are sent to the landfill or incinerated for fuel at cement plants.

It may be called carbon capture, or even carbon sequestration; we just call it common sense.

Sustainable Village Living | coming soon

 

Planethealer.com (under construction)

As a preview of things to come, we introduce Planet Healer, the sister company of ShreddedTire.

Planet Healer is to be a developer of 500 and 1,000 Echo Home, sustainable villages.

Gallia Villages by Planet Healer will be located around the world, will be built with recycled building materials and powered by sustainable energy sources.

Planet Healer will also build (not for profit) villages, funded by donors who pledge directly to a specific village that we will plan, advertise and promote.

Scroll through the gallery photos for a sneak peek at the village design and the concept homes we are considering.
