Minnesota Green Spotlight

I really need to send a big shout out to two MN companies that I admire and want to tell the world about: Metamorphosis and their Tuesday Green feature of Amazon Environmentals recycled paints.

Metamorphosis is a multi-faceted company that focuses on Realty as well as Design/Build, leasing and Property Management. They are environmentally conscious, locally connected and have an entertaining and informative blog (which is the goal of all of us, right?)

The latest blog post from Metamorphosis is featuring Amazon Environmentals, Inc and their incredible recycled paints. Amazon uses discarded paints that are brought to local Household hazardous waste centers for disposal. This is an exciting product that produces 12 colors made from recycled latex paints.  I am giddy. What a cool concept.

Check out these two very forward thinking MN companies.  I have a feeling we’ll be seeing a lot more from both in the future.

Environmental Statement

Green?  Eco?  Environmentally Friendly?

There is much information in the news about “Green” products.  We hate the word “Green” (since there is no tangible way to measure a “green” product) and prefer not to define ourselves by that term.

What’s important  to us is the overall environmental impact of a product, evaluated by the life cycle costs involved in a products’ production, maintenance and ultimately, its disposal.

laNeva Artisan Tile was founded on the idea that tile glazes should NEVER contain lead. Since we’ve been manufacturing tile, we’ve developed other ways to minimize our environmental impact through creative reuse of waste and reduction of extraneous materials. Everyday we do what we can and continually evaluate and improve our processes. We care about the world and want to see it stick around for our children, grandchildren and beyond.
