Stone Technologies recently introduced its environmentally friendly product Butcher Rock at its first annual “Go Verde” event.

WOBURN, MA - The adage, “Waste not, want not,” took on new significance as Stone Technologies unveiled its new sustainable design product, Butcher Rock, at its first annual “Go Verde” gala event. On Thursday, June 18 from 4 to 8 p.m., Stone Technologies and its featured corporate partners showcased a selection of green design products and services to the area’s architects, builders and interior design specialists. The event was held at Stone Technologies’ Design Center in Woburn, MA.

Butcher Rock is an innovative, eco-friendly application of natural stone remnants made of 100% recycled granite, and it is completely customizable by any conceivable color, pattern and texture, reports the manufacturer.

“We’re so pleased to be able to lead, support and promote this environmental initiative,” said Guy Fodera, president of Stone Technologies, LLC. “We are grateful for the involvement and dedication of our valued corporate partners who help us forge our commitment to offering sustainable products.”

Butcher Rock was just one of the sustainable design products that was introduced at Stone Technologies’ “Go Verde” gala event. Among the exhibitors that showcased were Eco by Cosentino, a durable surface made of 75% recycled content composed of post-industrial or post-consumer materials and bound by an environmentally friendly resin, which comes in part from corn oil.

“With great foresight, Stone Technologies has exhibited their commitment to being socially responsible,” said Brian Lynch, marketing manager for Cosentino, New England. “Cosentino is proud to have the opportunity to partner in their initiatives.”

Other showcase partners were Vetrazzo’s, who has recycled glass countertops; Green Depot, who showcased its Foundations Bamboo; and Lucia Lighting & Design, who featured various types of sustainable LED lighting. Additional green-partner companies that showcased at Stone Technologies’ “Go Verde” event included: LG Viatera, Atlantic Plywood and its Tenegran Bamboo, P&L Marble, Parksite with its Eco Top Paper Product, and TwoBFree2, a sales and marketing enhancement company dedicated to representing sustainable product and service companies.
