Sustainability (1)

Sustainability & Responsibility

In every relationship with our valued vendors, the issue of sustainable practices is paramount. The ability to reach certain goals varies a great deal based upon the specific product and material, but we are proud to partner with world class manufacturers and quarries committed to positive environmental practices, incremental improvements, and transparency. We rate sustainability based on the following practices:

Recycled Content

Identifying material options with identifiable recycled content either pre or post-consumer, including glazes and tile body.

Natural or Renewable

Adaptable, reusable, or recyclable components not leading to the use of unsustainable materials.

Ecologically Responsible

Non-toxic or non – hazardous to occupants and installers. Material does not require damaging maintenance, replacement, or disposal practices.

Resource-Efficient Manufacturing

Products manufactured with resource-efficient processes including reducing energy consumption, minimizing waste (recycled, recyclable and or source reduced product packaging), and reducing greenhouse gases.

Efficient Sourcing and Transportation

Product components found locally or regionally, saving energy and resources in transportation to factory and/or project site. Factories where products are manufactured are local to job site or to major port thereby reducing freight impact.
