At Shaw Floors, we are committed to doing the right thing for the environment, and we partner with suppliers who share in that commitment. Working with like-minded companies is crucial to creating a healthier ecosystem by reducing the amount of natural resources we consume. We admit it—it’s sometimes hard to find beautiful, quality products that are sustainably produced. But if anyone is up for the challenge, we are.
Seven of our porcelain tile collections (Fossil, Fired Hickory, Petrified Hickory, Metropolitan Slate, Lunar University and Manor) are manufactured with the environment in mind. Each of these collections contains up to 40% post-industrial recycled content, which can come from:
- Fine residues leftover from the processing of industrial sand
- Fired scrap tile that is reprocessed and used to make new tile
- Glazes and other waste from tile processing
- Post-consumer glass scrap leftover from discarded household glass containers
Don’t just take our word for it. Our commitment to responsible products has been recognized by global experts. Bureau Veritas is a leading international group specializing in testing, inspection and certification services. This respected organization acknowledges and validates the promises we make regarding our eco-friendly tile products. Five of our tile collections have been certified by Bureau Veritas: Brushstone, Lunar, Metropolitan Slate, Fired Hickory and Petrified Hickory.
