Eco-Friendly Tile You Need To Know About

January 8, 2019

As society becomes more and more environmentally conscious, products must reflect those same values. Here at Trinity Surfaces, we believe in building a sustainable future with earth-friendly products and the knowledge to support them.

Together, alongside manufacturers we believe in, we are nearing a milestone in designing and building: a sustainable, eco-friendly future. After all, on our own, we can make a difference but together, we can change the world.

It is not unusual for designers to seek eco-friendly flooring to fit their budgets. In fact, experts predict that the global eco-friendly tiles market will hit $37 million by the year 2023. We were beyond ecstatic to hear that kind of news, considering we’ve been fostering relationships with eco-friendly flooring companies for some time now.

So, how does eco-friendly tile fit into this conversation? For starters, its long life means that the need for replacement is rare. Secondly, it does not emit toxic fumes like other flooring options.

Let’s tile…er…talk, about some of our favorite brands and the products we love.
