Did you know that Marble & Granite Tech is doing its share to help the environment? As an eco-friendly countertop manufacturer based in the Chicago area, Marble & Granite Tech ensures that your project is completed in the most environmentally-friendly way possible.
We import 90% of our granite from suppliers that keep the environment in mind. When they are finished mining stone for your beautiful, natural countertop, they plant trees and other native vegetation in those areas.
When we measure for your custom made countertop, we use a digital measuring device. This means that we don’t have any waste by having to create a cardboard or wooden template. The digital measurements are uploaded right into our CAD department to draw your space. Then, when it’s time to cut your countertop, the CAD specialists send the file electronically to our expert machine operators. All leftover pieces, or remnants, can be fabricated into smaller items, such as vanity tops or table tops.
As your countertop is being produced, we operate our machines with 100% recycled water.
That’s right, we have our own water filtration system! Nothing gets put back into the sewers or the village. We filter and reuse every ounce of water!After your countertop has been fabricated, any waste materials including sand and extra pieces of stone are recycled. They go on to be ground up to make asphalt for new roads or into cement
When we come to install your beautiful new countertop, you’ll find that our installers use the most eco-friendly materials available to you! We’ll use low-odor acetone and silicone. Acetone is a product that occurs naturally in our environment. It’s found in everything from the foods we eat (blue cheese, raw chicken & beef, even human milk) to our lakes, soil and plants. Silicone is not only used in construction. It is also used in cookware, electronics, hair care products and is even being used now as an eco-friendly alternative to dry cleaners.
And, if you choose us to remove your existing countertops for you, you’ll be glad to know that we bring them back and recycle those too.
From start to finish, you can be sure that you are getting the most beautiful eco-friendly granite countertop. To get started on your own countertop, request a design consultation today.
