Tile By Design (TXD) is an importer and wholesale distributor of ceramic and stone, providing a range of consultation services to trade professionals and the general public. TXD has purchased wind power since 2006. Initially, the company supported green power initiatives because it was the right thing to do and because it reinforced the environmental and health benefits of the products TXD sells. Since then, Tile by Design has expanded its environmental commitments - from sustainable business practices to sustainable lifestyles. TXD began with operational initiatives like energy, transportation, recycling, and buying green. The company now subsidizes gardening, tree planting, community agriculture, and home energy audits for its work partners.
"Green power has turned out to be a keystone for us, helping us to build and strengthen our business and community relationships," says Dan Emmel, President of Tile By Design. "My work partners continue to identify new ways to expand our environmental commitments and, in challenging economic times, we are finding they deliver a lot of bang for the buck."
