We all love recycled glass tile, but if you're looking for something more affordable, durable, or easier to install, Crossville's recycled EcoCycle porcelain tile may be just the thing. Made from pre-consumer scrap tile and other waste products, Ecocycle tiles help keep these materials out of landfills.
EcoCycle tiles have been around a while, but it seems there are more colors available now than a few years ago. While nobody's going to mistake them for stone, they do read as high-grade porcelain tile. Where we've seen them installed, they look great even after several years of wear.
With the introduction of EcoCycle, Crossville is living up to its reputation as a company deeply committed to both the environment and to excellent design. The first tile to receive certification from Scientific Certification Systems for its recycled ceramic content, EcoCycle is a realistic stone look that exudes a feeling of warmth and rustic elegance. Designers seeking an eco-friendly tile no longer have to sacrifice aesthetic appeal; with eight rich, earth-toned colors, EcoCycle is beautifully at home in any environment.
Based on the SCS sudit, Crossville invested in a proprietary water filtration system designed to capture fine particulate matter that previously would have been land filled, eliminating approximately 5 million pounds of waste per year, and using it in the creation of the new EcoCycle series. The result is a high-quality, well designed and highly anticipated product that will be a welcome addition to the green building market.
A durable and virtually maintenance free Porcelain Stone product, the EcoCycle series includes eight colors: Wetlands, a warm beige; Marshland, a light cool gray; Earth, a mid-tone reddish brown; Pine Barren, a medium evergreen; Night Air, deep black; Grand Canyon, a light golden brown; and Plymouth Rock, a darker gray. Storm(EC001) is a gray mingle.
