In order for the design industry to thrive we must learn to do what we do sustainably. We must think about the impact our practices today will have on future generations. This Thursday at 5pm EST I’ll be hosting a Google Hangout with Heidi Vassalotti, sustainability guru for Crossville Tile.
Crossville has accomplished some amazing sustainability milestones in the last few years including:
- becoming a net consumer of waste, in other words Crossville consumes more waste than it creates.
- integrated recycled content into production of 100% of the company’s product lines.
- entering a landmark partnership with TOTO, to recycle pre-consumer fired porcelain fixures.
- creating the incredible Tile Take-Back Program
We’re going to talk about the philosophy behind Crossville’s sustainability initiatives and how Crossville took good intentions to profitable actions. You can join us live on Google Plus or watch on Youtube. Be sure to follow me on G+ or Twitter to catch the link when we go live Thursday at 5PM EST.
