Exhibition Review: Ecobuild and Sustainability
The social responsibility of sustainable practice is one which affects every business in this day and age, and Tech Tile London are no different; their commitment to having a positive impact on their environment in the creation and distribution of their sustainable stone tiles is one which falls directly in line with the ethos of the renowned Ecobuild show. Held recently at the Excel Arena in London, Ecobuild is the world’s largest event based solely around sustainable design and construction. Bringing together communities and ideas from a huge range of industries, the exhibition features more than 1,000 exhibitors, hundreds of free seminars and a number of influential speakers from the world of sustainable practice.
Tech Tile London is one of the UK’s premier providers of porcelain and natural stone tiles for commercial and domestic purposes. Their sustainability policy is an ever-changing document which aims to take into account many of the issues raised at the Ecobuild exhibition. All products from Tech Tile boast 100% natural raw materials, which have minimal negative impact on the environment and maintain a stunning natural aesthetic when they are installed. During the production of all commercial tiles for Tech Tile, more than 90% of the water used in the process is recycled, and an ISO 14001 environmental certification verifies all of these eco-friendly credentials.
As well as the sustainability practices which are in place throughout the entire business, Tech Tile’s products also conform and adapt to many of the innovative ideas which are discussed at the Ecobuild event. Using recycled content is one universally agreed way in which companies can reduce their impact on the environment, and is a method Tech Tile have taken to heart. The endlessly stylish and modern Design line of porcelain tiles, as well as the enduringly popular Prisma line both have around 40% recycled content. The supremely classy Elegance line is another range which makes use of recycled products in order to reduce the company’s impact on their immediate environment and the wider world; up to 75% of the tiles content is made from recycled materials. Using recycled content helps to reduce wastage when manufacturing such high-specification products without ever compromising the stunning appearance of the tiles. Many of the porcelain tiles in Tech Tiles’ collection also come in a slimmer version; they use less raw materials, are lighter to transport and take up much less space, helping to reduce the carbon footprint associated with crafting the tiles.
All tiles with recycled content are available in a wide range of shades, colours, sizes and finishes and they offer domestic and commercial customers peace of mind, knowing that the tiles on their walls or floors were not detrimental to the environment in their creation.
