The world’s going green and more and more builders are incorporating environmentally-friendly ceramic tile in their designs. Not only does it look fabulous when used for everything from bathroom floors to back splashes, it’s a great way to ensure that the environment remains beautiful for generations to come.

Ceramic tile is environmentally friendly from mining to installation. First, the materials used are not only plentiful, they’re easy to mine and manufacture. This reduces fuel consumption and ensures that precious resources aren’t consumed during the manufacturing process. And, environmentally-friendly ceramic tile is easy to spot by searching for the Green Squared label.

Many ceramic tiles feature recycled content which further reduces the environmental impact. Coupled with their long lifespan of 50 years or more, ceramic tiles are among the most environmentally friendly options available. That’s not even mentioning how easy they are to clean and maintain with simple soap and water; thus, reducing the need to use caustic and toxic chemical cleaners to keep them looking beautiful.
