Ilva S.A has added the mayor of Miami, Manny Diaz, to its growing list of supporters for its green initiatives in the manufacturing of porcelain tile products. Ilva co-sponsored a booth with D&B Tile Distributors at the Gateway to Green Expo in Miami Beach, FL, recently, “impressing Mayor Diaz with its Eco Land and Athena Stone collections, which contain up to 25 percent and 40 percent recycled materials, respectively,” according to Ilva.

Gateway to Green promotes energy efficiency in the home, along with green building products and environmentally sound manufacturing processes.
