Cheers to recycling

This week is national recycling week #RecycleWeek

Did you know, in the UK we recycle twice as much as we did 15 years ago. There’s still a long way to go, but as a nation, we’re getting better and better. At Granite & TREND Transformations we are already doing our bit, so we’d like to tell you about it! We have a commitment to the environment that has led us to transform everyday items into beautiful new assets.

Cheers to recycling

Did you know, we were the first company to combine recycled beer, wine and mineral water bottles with polymer technology? Our glass ranges use up to 72% post consumer recycled glassOne of our most notable examples of upcycling came when we turned the signature blue glass from recycled SKYY® Vodka bottles into mosaic tiles and recycled glass worktops to give them a whole new life.

Washing our hands of imperfect bathroom porcelain just isn’t an option either. Our porcelain surfaces are made from premium recycled bathroom products. Porcelain is one of the toughest substances on Earth and provides outstanding hardness, strength and durability.

Not surprisingly, we’ve been formally recognised and accredited for outstanding environmental management:

  • Our slabs are made from recycled materials
  • They’re lighter and don’t need extra structural reinforcement for installation
  • Heat, sunlight, flame, abrasion and water-absorption resistant they last a lifetime.

It’s more than just recycled products…

In addition to our fabulous range of products made from recycled materials, we go further. By offering replacement doors and refaced worktops, every kitchen or bathroom we makeover saves a skip full of unwanted cupboards and surfaces heading towards landfill, in fact can save waste by as much as 75%!
