Environmental Commitment

LEADING NATURAL STONE MANUFACTURER GOES GREEN:

As manufacturers and designers continue to search for new ways meet the growing need for eco-minded materials, designing a space with an environmentally focused theme is easier than ever.

Fitting these products into ideal design schemes, however, is quite challenging for the discerning consumer. ATV Marble Systems, the natural stone powerhouse that manufactures and distributes tile world-wide, combined over 18 years of experience with impeccable taste.

An eco-friendly line devoted to modern conservation and stylish responsibility, the collection was created by chance in one of the company’s vast warehouses. Rather than destroying remaining bits of natural stone from cut tiles, craftsmen carefully recovered pieces then creatively used them in new designs, making each piece unique and distinctive.

 

TURNING SCRAPS INTO STYLE: HOW A LEADING NATURAL STONE MANUFACTURER BOARDED THE ECO-TRAIN

As manufacturers and designers all over the world search for ways to help the environment, designing a space with an eco-friendly theme has never been easier. Water-based paints or fabric made from organic materials are overflowing the shelves of popular home retailers as consumers acknowledge the need for change. But when it comes to home renovation, there aren’t many options for the discerning consumer who wants to create an eco-friendly space without settling on just any design theme.

ATV Marble Systems, the natural stone powerhouse that manufactures and distributes tile world-wide, thought heavily about what they could do to start helping the environment. We first looked at our factories and the production that goes into cutting gigantic slabs of marble, travertine and granite into neat tiles. What we found was quite a bit left behind. Instead of throwing away pieces of travertine and marble remaining from cut tiles, we carefully recovered and creatively used the many shapes in new designs, devoting an entire line to this newfound art.

Its unique aesthetics showcase focal points in kitchens and bathrooms, promoting responsible awareness without compromising the integrity of the designer’s style statement. Blending ecologically gentle materials with distinctive patterns, the collections offers an endless array of design and expressions of individuality, all with a little help from some eco-minded leftovers. Helping the planet never looked so good.
