Practices & Partnerships

Sustainability

Green has always been our signature color

Before it was called ‘sustainability,’ responsibility was at the heart of Crossville’s business philosophy. As a proudly American manufacturer, we see reducing negative impacts on natural resources, and increasing the positive effects our products and our people have on the world around them, as two sides of the same beautiful solution.

From our progressive manufacturing practices, to our award-winning green tile innovations, to our commitment to improving the everyday experiences of our employees, customers and partners, Crossville is—and always has been—the industry leader in sustainability.

TOTO USA PARTNERSHIP

We partner with TOTO® USA sanitary wares to recycle pre-consumer fired porcelain they would normally discard into raw material for new tile. Just a few years into the program, Crossville has become the first net consumer of tile waste (meaning we recycle more than we produce), diverting millions of pounds of waste from landfills.


TILE TAKE-BACK™ PROGRAM

Ours is the only program of its kind that accepts previously installed fired porcelain, cut scraps and loose samples for recycling into brand new tile

RECYCLED CONTENT

We manufacture all our domestic tile collections using pre-consumer recycled content—up to 40% in some colorways.


RESOURCE
CONSERVATION

We recycle water for re-use in manufacturing processes, and strive to source what we need to make and market our products­—from raw materials to packaging, printing and transportation—from within 350 miles of operation.


LOCAL SOURCING

From our clay and raw materials to our trucks, packaging and printing, we strive to acquire what we need to make and market our products from within 350 miles of operation.
