This year’s BlogTour London would not be complete without Blanco, one of the world’s leading faucet and sink manufacturers. For this post, we wanted to expose a different side of BLANCO who not only create an inspired and thoroughly modern product range. They do it with the environment and highest quality standards in mind.
The Silgranit II sink with its clean and versatile design, shown here in our favorite finish Truffle , one of those great new neutrals that complement almost any counter top. The collection of Silgranit sinks are 80% granite with the look and feel of natural stone while resistant to the wear and tear of daily kitchen use. This innovative material allows for a cleaner more long lasting kitchen without the need for harsh chemicals that are harmful to the surface and the environment.
The Blanco Solon award winning compost system is everything green and more. The system works as a storage compartment for all things compost for the garden. The dishwasher safe recycled stainless steel container sits seamlessly within your countertop. The cap is not only stylish and sleek, it also traps odors allowing you to happily and easily compost away without the without unpleasant smells. What an ingenious design to promote a greener, healthier home environment and reduce stress on landfills.
BLANCO also features the HYDRA faucet that is sleek in design and conserves water. The HYDRA faucet is made with long lasting materials including a solid brass body. The faucet conserves 30% more water than a traditional faucet with a flow rate of 1.5 GPM.
BLANCO is consistently finding new ways to develop sustainable design and create these products in an eco-friendly process and environment. Tim Maicher, director of BLANCO marketing best describes their eco-friendly mission, “We believe that our overall focus must be sustainable and intensive beyond any legally required standard. To achieve this goal, we use the latest energy-saving exhaust air technology, returning heat energy back to the production process. Water consumption in our overall process was reduced 50% by installing water-cooling technology, and we continue to reduce production scrap by using the highest quality raw materials, computer-controlled mixing machines, optimized processes and production facilities.” Go green or go home.
