Sustainably Made

Sustainability Is the Heart of Who We Are

We started making tile because we believed there was a better way. Since Fireclay’s founding, we’ve been hard at work finding the most sustainable ways to manufacture our products and run our business. Read our full impact report.

Mindful Manufacturing

The numbers say it all. From glaze recycling to water reclamation, we’re using data to measure our progress as we continue to advance our sustainable initiatives.

Made in California
All of our signature ceramic Tile is handmade in California using domestically-sourced materials.

100% of Carbon Emissions Offset
Our Factory uses 100% renewable electricity. Through partnerships with Carbon Fund, Pachama, and Climate Neutral, we offset carbon emissions from all parts of our operation including the sourcing of raw materials, our whole production process, and all inbound & outbound freight emissions.

The First B Corp in Tile
As the first tile company to be a certified B Corporation, we’re committed to using business as a force for good.

As a company that makes and ships a physical product, we can’t ignore our carbon footprint. We are Certified Climate Neutral and have been measuring and offsetting carbon from various parts of our business since 2014.

What we’re made of matters. Our materials are carefully sourced and shared with you so you can have the highest confidence in our products.

Transparency is key to minimizing our industry’s impact. We’re always assessing our manufacturing practices and finding ways to improve.

We’re thrilled to have been selected by San Benito County as the 2022 Green Business of the Year!

See How It's Done

Recapture Water

All the water used in production is recaptured through drains and redistributed to the glaze line or extruders.

Recycle Granite Fines

We incorporate 4,140 lbs of recycled granite fines, waste from cutting granite rocks, in our Recycled Tile Body daily.

Reuse Glaze Sludge

We reincorporate glaze waste into our clay, which offset the disposal of 200,000 pounds of glaze waste in just six months.
