In reflection to the growing awareness about the environment, Fireclay Tile says it continues to increase the sustainable materials and practices in their tile designs.
Its Debris Series Recycled Tile now contains over 62% recycled materials. “Its unique clay body contains more post-industrial and post-consumer waste than any other tile on the market. The result is a high quality clay body with a warm red-brown hue that is truly beautiful, unique, and sustainable,” the company notes.
The Debris Series uses all locally sourced recycled materials and California Clay. The waste glass is made up of baghouse dust collected from local glass recyclers; the granite dust from a neighboring granite quarry, and the spent abrasives from the cleaning of pipes that transport water to the City of San Francisco. All products are manufactured within Fireclay's day-lit, open-air factory that recycles all possible used materials, including clays, glazes and water.
