Eco: beautiful, ecological efficiency
It’s time for our industry to recycle. Our environmental commitment is proven in products such as ECO by Cosentino®.
In the first year, ECO’s production line consumed the following equivalents of recycled material:
Consumption of glass: equivalent to 65 million bottles.
Consumption of vitrified ash: equivalent to a tower of 530 meters in height and a base of 10 square feet.
Consumption of discarded mirrors: equivalent to 2 million mirrors of 39″ x 39″.
Consumption of ceramic material: equivalent to 538,195 square feet of ceramic tile.
The concept of IceStone – diverting glass from the waste stream and “upcycling” that glass into a premium product- was conceived as a solution to challenges throughout the stone industry.
Since 2003, IceStone has stood as a pioneer at the forefront of a durable surface revolution, innovating beyond toxic resins, petrochemicals, and dangerous quarries. Few brands can match the “true” green story of IceStone, and fewer still can produce their unique composition of cement and recycled glass.
Today, IceStone offers the safest and most sustainable durable surface in the world.
Manufactured from 100% recycled glass and concrete under sustainable circumstances, IceStone redirects tons of waste glass from landfills every year.
Trinity Glass Products are made from recycled glass and low-carbon cement, with over 65% post-consumer recycled content. It fabricates, installs, and maintains like natural stone.
The natural aesthetic of Trinity hand-made slabs, with a palette drawn from the Pacific Northwest, will complement surroundings in both contemporary and traditional settings.
Squak Mountain Stone is a paper and cement-based composite made from at least 49% post-industrial recycled content and 2.5% post-consumer recycled content.
A graduate school essay that proposed taking mixed waste paper from a local non-profit center and turning it into a beautiful product has resonated with people around the world.
But it’s not the story that makes Squak Mountain Stone such a unique material: it’s the stone itself. It’s rustic. It’s varied. It doesn’t follow any of the “rules” established by modern countertop companies: you don’t “fix” it, you don’t dress it up, it won’t look seamless and it most certainly will not look like it came from a cookie-cutter factory. Squak is the “rebel” of the countertop world.
The appeal is in the hand-made nature, its pastoral, honest aesthetic and the sculptural variability that makes each slab distinct.
