Curava is one of the most eco-friendly surfaces on the market today and comprises 100% recycled glass fragments within a resin binder. Curava surfaces are manufactured using a variety of green friendly methods. We manufacture our products during daytime hours only while using no artificial lighting in the factory. Our manufacturing process results in NO water waste (That's right... "Zero") and we consume a minimal amount of electricity to produce each slab.
Where Does The Glass Come From
100% of the glass used in Curava is recycled. The glass is collected from landfills and other resources from post-consumer and post-industrial waste that includes discarded glass bottles and window and windshield glass.
Curava has been tested and certified Food Safe by NSF, the public health and safety company and is also a member of the United States Green Building Council (USGBC).
