Sonoma Tilemakers

Sonoma Tilemakers is another tile manufacturer that embodies environmental responsibility and boasts sustainability. Clay sourcing and reuse of solar energy are fundamental practices behind each and every tile. For instance, the new Dakota series from Sonoma Tilemakers, as shown below, incorporates recycled content from roof tiles into the earthy, clay body. Dakota features natural tones and contours, available in eight different hues, for a beautifully rustic, yet modern vibe. "As makers, creating a sustainable and smart pathway for production, energy, and water cycle is essential to our existence."

Oceanside Glass Tile

All Oceanside Glasstile is made primarily from silica sand, an abundant natural resource, with many colors also containing recycled content. Oceanside Glasstile's mantra is "From Curbside to Oceanside." This clearly shows their dedication to creating beautiful, expressive designs out of material that would otherwise end up in landfills. From lines including Geologie, Casa California, and Mosaic Blends, Oceanside Glasstile features a diverse collection of eco-friendly tile. They recycle over two million pounds of post consumer bottle glass each year! Now that's something you can feel good about!!

As is evident in their product designs and company missions, Crossville Inc., Sonoma Tilemakers, and Oceanside Glasstile are just a few of our manufacturers committed to environmental stewardship.
