Sustainable Surfaces … Even Our Seashells
If sustainability is important to you, as it is to most people, then, when you are searching for a new surface for a kitchen countertop, vanity top, furniture or bar top, you certainly want to check out Curava.
When it comes to sustainable surfaces, Curava is committed to recycling, even when it comes to the seashells included in two of our designs.
You’re probably scratching your head wondering why something from nature needs to be recycled. In fact, when seashells are left on the beach, nature takes care of the recycling. But what about shells that are harvested for décor or fashion?
That pretty sweater with the shell buttons or that vase you love that’s decorated with natural seashells are made from shells that were harvested from the sea. Once the manufacturing of those lovely things are done, the leftover shells are often discarded into landfills.
When we wanted to incorporate seashells into one of our designs, Savaii, instead of sourcing seashells from the ocean, we decided to source the shells left after the manufacturing process. Using these shells – which are perfect for our purposes – means less waste, as we incorporate beautiful seashells into striking recycled glass and seashell surfaces.
You can feel good about purchasing Curava. Our manufacturing facility uses a variety of green methods including a zero-water waste manufacturing process. Every square foot of our recycled glass surfaces removes 25 bottles from a landfill. We are always looking for ways to limit our environmental footprint, making Curava a responsible choice for your home.
We invite you to take a look at the bold, striking colors of our Curava surfaces. We offer a variety of colors and finishes including those with seashells. Visit one of our showrooms, find a Curava distributor near you or order samples from the comfort of your home to see the beauty of Curava up close.
