A Guide to Sustainable Tile

Available in recycled glass, ceramic and clay, today's varied sustainable tile options offer beauty and durability.

Ontario by Monocibec is a glazed porcelain tile that resembles wood and is suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Although it’s made in Italy (as many ceramic tiles are), it contains 40 percent recycled content and is manufactured using a cogeneration system—meaning the byproduct heat is used to generate electricity instead of being released into the environment. Monocibec also contributes to an annual carbon offsetting program.
