We design and create every part of our ceramic ware in-house, including the glazes and clay. Our great love for the earth that we use to create our wares with drives us to do our best to protect the environment that we create it in:
SAVING ENERGY :: Solar panels keep us on the bright side of energy use. We were at the forefront of solar business solutions, and our installation was originally one of the top ten largest in the Northwest. With 176 sharp 165 watt solar panels on our roof, we generate 35 megawatt hours annually. This saves over 70,000 lbs. of CO2 emissions every year!
SAVING WATER :: We are located on the Rogue River in Southern Oregon. The thriving local ecosystem has this river at its foundation, and we make sure it stays pristine. We wouldn’t dream of disposing of raw mineral waste down the drain. Our tile factory is the first we’ve ever seen to capture and distill all production waste water – without a single floor drain.
Dramatically reduced water footprint:: Making ceramic ware is usually a water-intensive business. By designing our own clay body, glazes, and custom water recycling processes, we save almost half the water consumed in standard tile manufacturing – more than 40,000 gallons of water each year.
CUTTING RAW WASTE COMPLETELY :: Engineered efficiency, way beyond a little recycling. ALL raw waste is captured in our unusual production process. We’ve custom-designed extra steps to collect all waste clay, glaze, and water, and recycle it until it leaves the building as a finished tile. And for pieces that don’t quite make the cut, our rejects are donated to local schools for at-risk youth, and Habitat for Humanity.
