The Sustainability of Our Copper Pipes
At Lawton Tubes, we are determined to combat climate change issues and reduce the amount of plastic waste that ends up in landfills and pollutes our planet. We strive to improve the sustainability of the industries we work in, helping our clients lower their carbon footprint.
Copper is one of the greenest metals available, and an estimated 80% of all copper produced in the last 10,000 years is still in use today. Furthermore, recycling copper requires 15% to 40% less energy than producing it, making its reuse a viable option.
Plastic pipe is frequently used in homes and workplaces. However, you will need to replace it regularly since it cracks, wears and tears. Additionally, you cannot reuse plastic piping in other installations.
At Lawton Tubes, we are addressing the issue of climate change head-on. We are honoured to collaborate with the Copper Sustainability Partnership (CuSP) to educate, inform and challenge industry leaders to learn more about the benefits of copper. Our objective is to support businesses in combating the overuse of plastics, implementing a renewable solution for the future, and helping protect our environment.

Unlike other materials, copper is highly impermeable – it keeps harmful, outside chemicals from contaminating the water system. Hence, ensuring your water supply stays protected.
In addition to its impermeability, copper also contains anti-microbial properties, making it difficult for bacteria to grow inside it.
High corrosion resistance
Copper water pipes don’t corrode as quickly as other metal pipes do. As a result, copper can effectively resist internal deterioration that leads to pipe ruptures and leaks.
Copper pipes are lightweight, making it easy for professionals to install them.
One of the most beneficial properties of copper is that you can recycle it endlessly without any loss of properties. Furthermore, unlike plastic pipes, copper pipes are produced from a naturally occurring metal, making them more environmentally friendly.
