Our Green Commitment
Urban Quarry is Thinking Green.
We are committed to providing an environmentally focused business by continually improving our daily operations with “green” on our mind.
Our environmental practices include:
- Saving thousands of gallons of water per year by ensuring that 99% of the water in our fabrication plant is recycled
- Reducing our waste by maximizing the material usage of the slabs with our state-of-the-art water jet equipment used to more accurately cut slabs
- Creating Remnant Programs for smaller projects such as sills, vanity tops, wall cap etc.
- Re-tooling and re-using all our diamond tooling equipment
- Digital templating, using laser technology eliminates the use of wood and plastic sheets for on-site templates thereby saving trees
- Using eco-friendly products such as Cambria Quartz Surfaces, which is Green Guard Certified for indoor air quality. Cambria also has the smallest "carbon footprint" of any other imported quartz products
- Using Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified paper for collateral and sales material
Future goals include having dealers order online through our web portal to eliminate paper waste. It’s just the beginning but we’re always looking to improve our processes to ensure our operations are environmentally friendly as possible.
