Great Earth-Friendly Products - #3 and 4

Antique bricks and paving stones add character and distinction to any outside area. Reclaimed from a variety of historic buildings and streets from Georgia, Chicago, Detroit and St. Louis, each brick and paving stone is naturally weathered and unique. Our Pavers and Hardscaping Photo Gallery has some great images.


The bathroom accounts for most of our indoor water consumption. Toilets, showers and faucets often steal away more fresh water then we need -- and you can still maintain optimal cleanliness with powerful fixture performance. Here are three ways Kohler fixtures can help:
  • Toilets that flush 1.28 gallons or less, when compared to a 3.5-gallon toilet, can save homeowners up to 16,500 gallons of water per fixture per year. (Based on average usage of a household of four.) 
  •  Faucets with low-flow aerators deliver up to 45% water savings over traditional 2.75 gpm faucets. 
  • 1.75 gpm water-conserving showerheads and handshowers deliver an impressive 35% water savings over traditional 2.75 gpm showerheads and handshowers.

Great Earth-Friendly Products - #1 and 2

In honor of Earth Day on April 22nd, we selected products for our Earth-Friendly Green List. Many of the manufacturers we work with offer great products with green attributes -- everything from water and energy conservation to recycling and sustainability. Here are the first two on the list:

ECO by Cosentino countertops are made from 75% recycled materials such as mirror, glass, porcelain, earthenware and vitrified ash. Even 94% of the water used in its manufacturing process is re-used. Available in a wide range of colors, this sleek surface comes in two textures -- Polished (providing a brilliant shine) and Leather (for a matte finish). ECO also has an extremely low rate of water absorption and porosity, making it an ideal material for bathrooms and kitchens. Learn more about ECO by Cosentino.

Elmwood is proud to be part of the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturer’s Association’s Environmental Stewardship Program, which recognizes manufacturers that reduce pollution and waste and promote resource sustainability. Here are a few ways Elmwood offers great sustainable solutions:
  • 5-piece solid wood doors made from Lyptus trees -- a hybrid tree derived from the eucalyptus species. They grow quickly and virtually every portion of the log is utilized. 
  • 3 contemporary door styles are available in environmentally responsible engineered exotic veneers. These veneers preserve rare and exotic trees for future generations by being plantation grown. 100% of the wood fibre is used. 
  • Plyboo solid bamboo doors for both the contemporary Newport and transitional Messina styles are available in natural lite or caramel finishes. A great wood for sustainability, bamboo’s growth rate can be as much as 6 inches up to 1 foot per day or 1.5 - 2.0 inches per hour.
