Climate Tile

Danish firm, Third Nature, have developed new perforated paving slabs with holes allowing rainwater to be channelled to surrounding plants, with excess water stored until it evaporates. The tiles are currently being tested on a street in Copenhagen. With more rain expected in Denmark as the climate changes, the idea is to cut the amount of water going into sewers, reducing time and money spent needing to repair and expand wastewater facilities. Third Nature say the tiles can redirect around 30% of the projected increase in rainwater that will be created by climate change.​
