by La Pietra Compattata
Why is it sustainable?
Likeabee is a tile made upcycling stone waste, coming from other companies’ debris from cutting porphyry, quartz and granite.
Unlike the common process, tiles from La Pietra Compattata are dried naturally without oven-cooking. Cutting and tumbling are closed-loop processes that reuse the same water over again.
All production offcuts are reused internally and – when too small – they’re given to third party companies to be used as road substrate material.
La Pietra Compattata is also mindful of the environmental footprint of its packaging.
Samples are shipped in FSC-certified cardboard packaging sealed with paper tape. Orders are packaged with shrink wrap made of recycled plastic and transported on wooden pallets that can be returned to the company for reuse.
