TILES FOR THE FUTURE
At Earp Bros sustainability is at the heart of everything we do.
The Australian construction industry creates more than 20 million tonnes of waste every year and as a community, we know we have a responsibility to reduce our carbon footprint and impact on the environment. In other words, we know we can do better.
For 35 years we’ve worked with world-renowned manufacturers in Spain and Italy. Through these partnerships, and a shared passion for continual improvement and environmental sustainability, together we have created an exclusive supply chain of sustainable tile products for the Australian market.

PRODUCT STEWARDSHIP PROGRAM
For the planet
We understand that corporate social and environmental responsibility goes beyond the point of sale and warranty periods. For this reason, the adhesives used in the installation process must be VOC free adhesives.
In conjunction with Veolia Australia, one of Australia’s leading environmental services providers with over 30 years industry experience in implementing effective, innovative and sustainable waste management, we have developed a Product Stewardship Program that enables our tiles at the end of their life, to be 100% recycled.
As an uncontaminated load at end of life, your tiles can be taken to recycling facilities in the Sydney, Melbourne and Newcastle areas and recycled through crushing for use in building materials, tiles, road bases, bedding sands or aggregates.
