Before

As part of a complete washroom make-over, this entertainment facility recently received a facelift, which included trough sinks created by everGreen.  OK maybe this one might be considered an extreme example , but outdated,  worn-out multiple sink commercial washrooms can be found everywhere.  Excess countertop collects used hand towels, standing water,garbage etc.    The drop-in sinks collect bacteria around the edges.

 

 

 

 

 

Extended Box Trough AFTER

Our durable trough sinks can be customized to fit your exact space .  The trough profiles and styles are unlimited, in terms of  shape, depth and length.   There are lots of colors and textures to choose from.   Our trough sinks are designed to minimize the counter area that will collect dirty, standing water and drain the water as quickly as possible.  Installation costs are reduced, by eliminating the need to install drop in sinks.  They can easily be suspended from the wall, or  integrated with any kind of base.  The finish is extremely durable,  and very easy to clean.

If you use only green or recycled products, do they make your house GREEN?

Comments Off on If you use only green or recycled products, do they make your house GREEN?

Products made from recycled materials don’t make a house “Green” any more than solar panels do. But it is important to keep the goals of sustainable building in mind when making purchasing decisions. That’s not always easy. Take for example a granite countertop. Granite is a natural material and is extremely durable. But what if the stone is imported from the Far East and is mined in a country where labour or environmental laws are suspect? How much energy is consumed if it has to be shipped to another country for polishing and then shipped to a distributor in North America, then to a fabricator for cutting and dimensioning before it finally reaches your home?

Choosing appropriate materials is a lost effort if the house wastes fuel or is poorly designed and built. But given the right context, green products are an important part of sustainability.
