The Green Vanguard: C is for Ceramics
Ceramic tiles have been around for thousands of years, and it’s no wonder. They’re easy to maintain, long lasting, and recyclable—in other words, inherently sustainable. The Italian and Spanish ceramic-tile industries are powerhouses, together accounting for almost 12 percent of world production. They produce high-quality products with a wide variety of decorative and technical applications, ranging from delicate tiles that are less than four millimeters thick to bold ones reflecting the latest fashion-forward colors.
