"Being green is not new to Crossville. Long before it was a trend, it was a core principle for us. And long after the buzz has died down, we will be committed to sustainable practices.

From the first tile Crossville produced in 1986 to the most recent to come off the production line, each has been manufactured in a sustainable manner. Crossville’s proprietary filtrate system enables the company to divert more than 6 million pounds of postindustrial waste from landfills each year to create third-party certified recycled products. In 2009, Crossville introduced the industry’s first recycling program for previously installed tile—The Tile Take Back Program—which will reduce landfill waste by another 4 million pounds. Crossville utilizes clean-burning fuels, recycles water used in manufacturing back into manufacturing processes and reviews each of its operational units on an ongoing basis to ensure sustainable practices are in place. Crossville is a Beautifully Green Alternative™.
