"In our commitment to #sustainable construction..."

As so often with Aggregate Industries, things are not quite what they seem.

It's an admirable claim that AI is sourcing sustainable secondary aggregates. Bravo. Or it would be, if the photograph used to promote such claims was not showing unsustainable primary virgin aggregates quarried, processed and stockpiled in the East Devon AONB.

In fact, if the photograph seems familiar, it was the same one used last year to support the unsustainable destruction of an East Devon farm; a farm that's been in operation for hundreds and hundreds of years.
