Lieberman’s Forever Stone makes pavers, tile, fire pits, columns, benches and more from recycled granite waste. “We’re reducing waste by 10,000-30,000 pounds a week,” he says.
The Downingtown company has started making columns out of recycled granite. “We can wrap any post or column six-by-six feet or smaller,” Lieberman says.
Lieberman is volunteering for Greenbuild 2013, the world’s largest conference and expo dedicated to green building that’s slated for Nov. 20-22 in Philadelphia, and he’s on the Legacy Committee.
Granite fabricators throw away 25-40 percent of each processed slab. Forever Stone is 100-percent LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) contributing. “And it’s reasonably priced,” says Lieberman. “The Main Line consumes a lot of granite, making my business possible.”
The more his business grows, the more material Lieberman promises to recycle.
