Carbon Positive Australia

With each sale, we proudly collaborate with Carbon Positive Australia, a grassroots organisation deeply rooted in Australian values, focusing on real, tangible environmental restoration. Carbon Positive Australia is hands-on, literally planting native trees, bolstering Australian conservation, and reviving our ecosystems. Their approach isn’t just about numbers; it’s about fostering optimal conditions for ecosystem health and scaling up carbon sinks.
Sustainable practices are paramount at Nood Co. From prototyping through to delivery, each step in the manufacturing process has been modified with a sustainable view. Over 85% of Nood Co’s concrete composition and packaging material is sourced from within Australia, including the finest sand grades and natural admixes, right through to recycled cardboard packaging.
Low Volatile Organic Compound (VOC)

All our products are crafted using a concrete mix with low Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) levels, ensuring minimal environmental impact and improved indoor air quality. The sealing process involves a food-safe, UV-stable sealer with an exceptionally low VOC content, enhancing the product’s longevity and safety.

Omission of Portland Cement

With the increased concern of the environmental effects of the production of Portland cement, Nood have responded by removing this from our concrete composition.

Embodied Energy

Nood Co has created a unique blend of UHP concrete that uses around 96% less energy than that to create its ceramic equal. A ground breaking statistic. Nood Co basin manufacture involves the use of multiple silicon molds and a handmade process. Machinery-aided manufacture has been avoided to ensure an extremely low embodied energy and pollution emission rate, whilst not compromising on efficiency and production output.

Eliminating Waste

Nood Co takes sustainability seriously, boasting a remarkable 95% pass-through rate for its concrete products. Our commitment to the environment ensures that less than 5% of waste is produced, with the remainder being fully recycled through a closed-loop system at a local facility. Not only are our products made from recycled materials, but they can also be fully recycled at the end of their lifespan, offering clients an eco-friendly disposal option if necessary.

Designed & Handmade in Australia

Nood basins are a testament to local craftsmanship, handcrafted right here in Perth, Australia. Every basin is meticulously hand-poured, reflecting our commitment to quality and ethical manufacturing. Six out of seven of the materials that are essential to our production process are sourced from Australia. Nood Co products not only champion Australian quality but also significantly reduce transport emissions by staying local.
