Go green! A popular mantra recently, being “green” or sustainable has become increasingly important throughout industry. As we just passed Earth Day, we are seeing sustainable options stressed more and more. Here at JSG, we want to take part in this movement, ensuring that all of our materials and products meet proper environmentally-friendly standards.
How green is our “Hard Roc” glass? Here’s a quick look at the main earth-friendly points of our business:
- Recyclable materials: Our borosilicate glass is comprised of recycled materials and is, in turn, recyclable itself. In fact, most of our kitchen and bath sinks, as well as glass tiles, are manufactured from recycled glass.
- Landfill safe: Since the glass is non-porous, it is hygienic and safe for the environment. Additionally, the colorations and compositions of the glass are not hazardous materials. Therefore, if we produce glass that doesn’t meet our quality standards, we can easily crush it down and recycle it for new products.
- Lead-free: While other materials are made with chemicals or paints, our glass is clear of these extra hazards, including lead.
A main goal of our company is to ensure our manufacturing is environmentally-safe, not only for our sake, but for our customers who want to remain green as well. It is important to us to meet and exceed various industry standards and manufacture products that are eco-friendly. How will you be celebrating the green movement?
