Tile of Spain member Roca introduces its greenest collection of ceramic tiles
Demonstrating its longstanding commitment to the environment, leading tile manufacturer Roca has launched the new TOP Green collection of ceramic tiles.
This eco-friendly new range is produced with 80% recycled material and is the company’s greenest collection of ceramic tiles to date. Certified by the Veritas Bureau, the leading firm in providing Health, Safety and Environmental advice, it is also one of the most ecological ranges in the industry.
The TOP Green collection consists of two main ranges, Green Earth and Green Urban, each of which features different sizes and colour ways. Bringing the outside in, the Green Earth range is available in four beautiful neutral tones that are ideal for interiors with a rural and rustic character. With the Met Office recently predicting a heat wave for the coming summer, Green Earth tiles will not only help to keep your home cool as temperatures rise, but will also give it a great Mediterranean look and feel. Sizes range from 30x30cm to 43x70,5cm.
The Green Urban range provides a more contemporary concrete stone like finish and is suitable for interior, as well as exterior use. It is available in a standard size of 49x49cm in both a pale grey and an anthracite colourway.
In addition to these core pieces, the range incorporates decorative mosaic range extensions which feature a recycled paper-based mesh backing, further contributing to the sustainable approach of this forward thinking company.
Not only does Roca utilise recycled raw materials for the ceramic tile base, but it is also taking sustainability into account during the manufacturing process. Roca generates all the energy that is required and reuses water and heat wherever possible. Ceramic tiles that do not meet its stringent testing requirements are donated to concrete manufacturers to ensure that the Roca factory has zero waste. The manufacturer is also working with ‘FUNDACIÓN + ÁRBOLES’ on planting a forest in Southern Spain, helping to counteract the consequences of global warming in support of an EU initiative to plant one billion trees around the world.
