Transforming Kitchens Sustainably: Celebrating World Environment Day

As World Environment Day approaches on 5th June, we’re thrilled to shed light on our eco-friendly makeover menu at Granite & TREND Transformations. Our commitment to sustainability aligns perfectly with the ethos of this global event, highlighting the urgent need for environmental preservation.

Pioneering Sustainability in Kitchen Renovations

At Granite & TREND Transformations, we’re setting the bar high for eco-friendly kitchen solutions. Our innovative makeover menu relies on renewable sources, such as recycled materials to cut waste sent to landfill during a traditional kitchen refurbishment. Did you know that our worktop and door replacement service mean 75% less waste goes to landfill from every installation we do? Our Top that fits on Top is designed to be installed directly on top of your existing kitchen and bathroom worktops, meaning there no form of demolition is necessary as we can apply our innovative slabs over any existing worktops, saving on sending construction debris to landfill.

Recycle to Reduce Waste

We’re proud to say that we recycle 70% of the waste generated in traditional quarry mining, using it as a key ingredient in our granite and quartz surfaces etherium® By E-stone surfaces. This practice significantly reduces waste at its source, achieving between 30-70% less overall waste – saving on natural resources.

Our emphasis on repurposing materials, such as refacing cabinets (using the original cabinet interiors and replacing only the doors) reflects our commitment to sustainable practices in line with World Environment Day’s objectives.

Glass Recycling for Lower Carbon Emissions

Each year, we use a staggering 7.5 million tons of recycled glass. This commitment to using recycled materials reduces our carbon emissions by a remarkable 1,250 tonnes annually. We were the first company to combine recycled beer, wine and mineral water bottles with polymer technology. This dedication to recycling glass materials highlights helps us reduce our carbon footprint significantly.

Minimising Waste and Conserving Resources for a Greener Future

We take pride in producing 22% less waste material and contributing to 20% fewer polluting emissions compared to standard practices.

In our pursuit of sustainability, Granite & TREND Transformations leads by example, using processes that require 3-5 times less water, energy, and raw materials compared to competitors.

Having an eco-friendly kitchen or bathroom does not mean compromising on quality and style – and our incredible products prove it. We work in partnership with many of the world’s foremost environmental organisations, architects, and designers to promote sustainability – not because it’s the fashionable thing to do, but because it’s the right thing to do – for us, for you, and for all our futures.

We don’t do it to change people’s minds about recycling, but because it makes sense. Our commitment to sustainability reaches into the heart of every single part of what we do here at Granite & TREND Transformations. From process to product, to installation and beyond.

All so that we can bring you kitchens and bathrooms that not only look good, but make you feel good too.
