All Things Green: Inspiring Ways to “Go Green” in Your HomeMarch 15, 2021 // Posted in:
March is the month of green. After all, it’s when we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!
In keeping with the green theme, Granite and TREND Transformations is switching things up by showcasing “all things green.” We will be featuring our stunning green mosaic tile, suggesting beautiful ways to use the color green in your home, and discussing how Granite and TREND Transformations—and its products—have been recognized for their commitment to the environment with certifications from leading organizations.
Green mosaic tile
Today’s designers are raving about the color green—especially during this season. And where home renovations are concerned, look for this rich hue in kitchen backsplashes, tub surrounds, and shower accents. As a company that’s passionate about design, Granite and TREND Transformations stays ahead of the curve when it comes to the hottest trends. Our three exclusive shades of green mosaic tile are beautiful examples of today’s most sought-after looks. Each shade pairs beautifully with our etherium® By E-Stone surfaces and complements any décor. Which of these is your favorite?
Green décor and more
You can’t help but think of nature when you see the color green. So, it’s no wonder that applying this beautiful hue to any room in your home should come naturally. From painting an accent wall to using green throw pillows or an area rug, the color green is always in style.
And design experts agree: Decorating with plants is the easiest way to add touches of green to your home décor. (Don’t forget your four-leaf good luck clover!) Did you know there are certain health benefits to houseplants? It’s true. Read all about it in our blog: “Best Indoor Houseplants for Your Optimum Health.”
Committed to “green” practices
“Going green” is becoming one of today’s more popular catchphrases. But what does it really mean? From living a more environmentally-friendly lifestyle to taking steps to preserving the Earth and its non-renewable resources, “green” has taken on several meanings.
Did you know Granite and TREND Transformations’ products are designed specifically to consume fewer raw materials and to extend durability? Our belief is simple: Great style and beauty do not have to be sacrificed in the pursuit of corporate responsibility. Long before it became fashionable, Granite and TREND Transformations, an eco-friendly countertop manufacturer, declared a commitment to implementing real-world processes that protect and preserve the planet’s resources.
We are proud to be recognized among numerous organizations that are committed to providing health, safety, and eco-friendliness standards for companies across the world. These organizations include U.S. Green Building Council, GREENGUARD and NSF.
Did you know that our etherium® By E-Stone surfaces contain up to 72% post-consumer recycled material, while our mosaics contain up to 78%? Additionally, our engineered stone surfaces require 60 percent less raw materials and incorporate both geologic waste and recycled glass, which would otherwise end up in landfills.
Here are some ways to show how Granite and TREND Transformations is sensitive to the environment and committed to the safety of its customers:
- Our manufacturing facilities were designed with sophisticated water recycling systems to significantly reduce water consumption and the proliferation of pollutants.
- We use recycled or reusable packaging to reduce the consumption and cost of packaging materials.
- The overall waste produced at our manufacturing facility—located in Sebring, Florida—has been reduced by over 22 percent.
- The company collaborates with the world’s leading environmental organizations, architects, and designers to promote sustainable building practices.
