Think Green, Live Green

 

By going green and coming up with preventive measures, many are trying to save the world. Or else, our future will be at stake.
Everyone has a part to play, to help our environment.

We should strive to conserve the environment, making it a better place for everyone.
At Heritage Ceramics, we join in and do our part.
We produce tiles that are environmentally-friendly, yet not losing its aesthetic features, under our SPACE series. These tiles are marked under the Singapore Green Label.

In Singapore, the Singapore Environment Council (SEC) came up with The Singapore Green Labelling Scheme (SGLS) in May 1992, to endorse industrial and consumer products that have less undesirable effects on our environment. It is a seal of endorsement on its environmentally-friendly claims to prevent the abuse of green-washing. The SEC is a member of the Global Ecolabelling Network (GEN), consisting of 25 other countries, allows the SGLS endorsed products to be more recognised and accepted by other members.

The Green Label is widely recognised by ministries, governmental agencies, in Singapore or regionally. It is easy for purchase and procurement for those who wants to choose products on environmental grounds.

In our SPACE collection, till date, there are 6 series that have been awarded the Singapore Green Label. From the Architect collection, we have Saturn, Concept, Big Rock, Compact and Mineral series. From the Stone collection, the Everest series has obtained the Green Label.

Being sophisticated and yet priced economically, they are suitable for industrial, commercial and residential use. Each collection has different designs, colours and finishes, making it suitable for any location, be it home, outdoors or even shopping malls.

Going green helps with pollution and conserves energy. Consumption and waste will reduce, protecting earth's ecological environment.  We will gain awareness and knowledge of current environmental issues, making responsible decisions.

A lot of toxic substances gets released daily into the environment. Such as waste chemicals from detergents, or toxic gases from cars. A huge amount of energy and substances gets consumed and released when manufacturing tiles. Going green will help us to reduce the amount of toxic waste that’s released.
Usage of a smaller amount of resources helps conserving resources and energy. This ensures that the environment will not get harmed.

So why wait? Hurry join us in going green by switching the usage of tiles to those marked with the Singapore Green Label!
