Embedded Carbon footprint
Graphenstone have now concluded the certification of our embedded carbon footprint. It's positive news! Our level is about one-fifth of those few paints companies who have also conducted the same research. At Graphenstone, we seek certification for our claims and this recent research into our embedded carbon number is certified by Solingesa, Spain.
Our entire Carbon footprint (complete raw material extraction to end of manufacture) presents the value 0.5kg / litre. However, our numbers do not take into account the CO2 sequestration benefits of all our lime based paints, which would enhance our numbers significantly.
Patience & Gough in Cumbria restore and decorate the most beautiful reclaimed pieces of furniture.
And they have just repainted the exterior of their wonderful high street premises in Grange-over-Sands, using Graphenstone's range, this one in 'Ebony'.
"Some of the best paint we have ever used!" says Ollie. Ollie Gough and Alice Patience are great believers in respecting the environment and reducing waste whenever possible. All this is an ideal marriage with Graphenstone's ethos and product range, with all our packaging both 100% recycled and 100% recyclable.
We much look forward to viewing the results inside the showroom, which is also about to receive a luxuriously rich coat of Graphenstone's sustainable, healthy air-purifying interior mineral paints.
