LiveGREEN With Italtile

This month we celebrate the greatest Mother of all. Like all moms, she has always been taken for granted. But thanks to a bunch of tireless warriors around the globe, the nations of the world are waking up to the importance of treating the earth with respect.

Today we recognise our collective responsibility to promote and sustain harmony with nature and the earth to achieve the balance that will keep the earth living and breathing for our children and our children’s children and… you know the drill. Basic housekeeping rules apply. Tidy up after yourself. Don’t leave a mess for someone else to deal with. (Moms of the world understand this, for sure!)

Go green and mean it.

Of course, it would be ludicrous to be mindful for one day only and then spend the rest of the year being careless. We see today as the day we recharge our green batteries and test our environmental checks and balances. Are we just green on the outside? Or are we green to the bone?

The #livegreen logo.

Italtile strives to be green at heart and to that end, they hold themselves and their suppliers accountable to an eco-standard they call LiveGreen. Green enough isn’t green enough. They believe that to ‘live beautifully’ doesn’t just mean to surround oneself with gorgeous things. It means treading carefully, making responsible choices, even looking for second life and upcycling options. Italtile beauty is more than just skin deep.

The LiveGreen logo is a seal of approval for beautiful design that’s eco-friendly and sustainable. Italtile sets itself high standards of living beautifully and have selected a range of world-leading products that all pass Italtile’s green test with flying colours. LiveGreen designs minimise impact on the environment, during both manufacturing and use. They incorporate space-age, eco-friendly technology… and make responsible design decisions so that you can, too.

Green showroom blueprints

They naturally progressed into designing green showrooms and operating procedures: Italtile Boksburg was the first eco-friendly showroom. The greening process has been ongoing: The Glen was built using the same green blueprint, the newest showroom in Clearwater functions completely off the grid, running off solar power and borehole water and all future Italtile showrooms will proudly showcase the LiveGreen ethos.

Green goes with everything.

A browse through Italtile’s beautiful merchandise will reveal the abundance of green showpieces online and instore: their design-certified sales advisers will prove to you that you can go green from floor to ceiling with Italtile.
