Earth Day got us reflecting on the sustainable practices of our partners. Here’s what we found:

Brizo’s commitment to sustainability impacts everything they do—from WaterSense® labeled faucets and showerheads offered throughout all of their bath collections, to the revolutionary H2Okinetic®Technology that creates the feeling of a high-flow spray while using only a fraction of the water, they have products that exceed WaterSense® labeling requirements and are available to everyone looking to be more water conscious.

The natural environment, once thought of as indestructible, is in fact a fragile system, that we all must take responsibility to protect and nourish in consideration of the future generations. Lacava embraces the motto “Have concern for other people,” and makes every effort to respond to the market needs while respecting the goodness and beauty of nature. Lacava believes it is its responsibility to be committed to manufacturing top-notch furniture and to continuously look for ways to reduce and eventually eliminate the usage of environmentally unfriendly materials, byproducts, and processes.
Native Trails uses sustainable materials in many of their luxury bath products. These materials aren’t always what springs to mind when one envisions a luxurious bathroom. It’s true that the two haven’t always gone hand in hand: For some, sustainability paints a picture of austerity, while luxury brings to mind lavish extravagance. Thankfully, that paradigm is shifting, and the selection of sustainable luxury products for the bath is swelling. Sustainably sourced materials for the bath include those that are recycled or reclaimed, rapidly renewable, and/or certified as sustainable. Durability is supremely important, as a longer-lasting material will not need to be replaced as quickly and thus won’t take up space in a landfill.
