REUSE, REDUCE, AND RECYCLE
Below are some examples of how we have succeeded in making environmentally prudent changes. Some are little things, some more dramatic but all help reduce the use of natural resources, increase sustainability and enhance reusability.
CONVERSION FROM STYROFOAM PACKAGING TO RECYCLED CARDBOARD PACKAGING
Styrofoam packaging has been the industry standard of packaging and shipping natural stone tile for many years.

Over the last 2 years we have succeeded in converting over 95% of our stone tile suppliers from Styrofoam to cardboard, and in many cases, post-consumer recycled cardboard.
