Soupcan implements sustainability in every aspect of its practice, starting at the manufacturing process: they use automated technologies for better material yields, less waste stream production, and enhanced product performance. Scrap material is used for their material samples or recycled through a local facility and they have established centralized cardboard and paper recycling throughout their facility and all other businesses in the building.
And while getting locally made (Chicago) countertops is the best way to go, Soupcan has partnered with EA Logistics, a green transportation company to deliver their products throughout the US.
Soupcan produces four types of countertops, concrete, zinc copper and stainless steel, to give their customers a variety of eco-friendly surface options &mdash each can be used independently or together for a unique countertop design. The concrete countertops come in 16 different colors, all of which can be customized with grind patterns, aggregate substitutions and integrated treatments such as drain boards and soap dishes. Check out Soupcan's website for further information on each countertop material and why they're sustainable.
