Mozaico’s views on sustainable design are part of every piece of mosaic art we craft. Our use of natural stone isn’t just a design choice - it’s part of a complete approach to ethical business practices.
Sustainability-focused business is a step up from the standard “Green” or “Eco-Friendly”. It’s a commitment to choosing materials and production standards that will help future generations, while minimizing environmental impacts today.
Our team spends a lot of time sourcing our environmentally sensitive and recycled materials. We are proud that these efforts allow us to use other businesses' waste and turn it into art. While seeking out the marble and semiprecious stones we use in our products, we are able to purchase and utilize stone waste and remnants from these suppliers.
Mozaico is proudly committed to upcycling - one of the best manufacturing trends to arise in the 21st century. The practice of upcycling takes recycling to the next level: Using or reusing materials that would otherwise be discarded to create items that are of much higher quality and value than the original. It’s a fantastic way to reduce waste and utilize natural materials fully - and beautifully.
Upcycling the stone discards from manufacturers of items such as countertops, sinks, and backsplashes create elegance and aesthetic pleasure from scraps and remnants.
As such, our search for beautiful colors leads us to treasures that are ripe for recycling - from out-of-the-way places and small businesses. We’re able to keep their unused supplies and waste out of the landfill - and ensure that each lovely piece of natural stone is transformed into new pieces of mosaic art. Take a close look at our designs, and you’ll see that even the smallest tiles are used in our designs - keeping our own waste to a minimum.
Our commitment to recycling and sustainability extends to our packaging materials - where we do our part to keep waste out of landfills. Our shipping boxes, carton, paper, and bubble wrap can all be recycled and reused after they protect your new mosaic art in transit.
Our workshops do their own part with recycling - down to collecting the plastic scraps leftover from the stone-cutting process. We ensure these barrels of scrap plastic head on their way to our local collection centers for responsible processing.
On a smaller scale - our facilities stay green with their use of solar panels for power - reducing energy usage year-round. Even our online catalog reduces our impact - helping us keep paper catalogs out of the landfill. When you’re buying Mozaico art, you can feel good about your purchase!
Our sustainability practices have always been part of Mozaico’s principles - and it’s something we’re proud of. Rest assured that you’re purchasing the highest-quality mosaic art from a company that cares. Read More...
