Are you tired of seeing cement go hard in the bag before you get to use it? A simple solution from Lafarge is to use Plastic Bags rather than paper. Unlike paper bags, plastic prevents the cement from getting damp if stored outdoors saving as much as 10% on wastage alone. General Purpose+ (42.5N) cement is ideal for general purpose concrete, mortars and renders, screeds and DIY applications. Its innovative, waterproof and tear resistant packaging keeps it dry whatever the weather, which means less waste and better value. Ask your merchant about General Purpose+ cement today

Sustainability is a major focus for Lafarge, and environmentally friendly packaging is just one example of how the company supports product stewardship practices in the design, manufacture, distribution and application of its products. Plastic packaging of General Purpose+ is more 39%* more environmentally friendly than the paper alternative. Lafarge was the first cement manufacturer to commission an in-depth study, undertaken by leading environmental consultants BASF, to fully understand the environmental impacts of its packaging. The comprehensive six-month study reviewed the six factors of Energy Consumption, Resource Consumption, Emissions, Land Use, Health Effects and Risk Potential associated with both materials. Critically, the study for the first time takes into account the influence of these factors from the ‘cradle to the grave’, incorporating issues associated with disposal and recycling – which are a significant issue for merchants needing to dispose of wasted cement.
