As Heath Ceramics says:

Our sustainability goals date back to Edith's [Heath] proprietary clay body development. Our clay bodies require one firing as opposed to the more typical two firings, and are fired at a lower temperature than are customarily used to reach the same levels of durability. Edith was being frugal and resourceful in 1946 — qualities she learned from growing up in the Great Depression. This same motivation inspired her to make products with longevity, designed right the first time, produced with thought and ultimately reducing waste and limiting the "cheap and easy" mentality. Today, we're proud to make products in the US - geographically it's closest to where our materials originate and where our products are put to use. Our list goes on and on — the common theme being that we work hard to do things in a holistic manner, thoughtful and resourceful from the beginning…that's our "green story."
