“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™ is just one of the sustainable design products to be introduced at Stone Technologies’ first annual “Go Verde” gala event. On Thursday, June 18 from 4pm to 8pm, Stone Tech and its featured corporate partners will showcase a selection of green design products and services to the area’s finest architects, builders, and interior design specialists.

Among the exhibitors to be showcased is Eco by Cosentino, a durable surface made of 75% recycled content composed of post-industrial or post-consumer materials and is 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, market manager for Cosentino, New England. “Cosentino is proud to have the opportunity to partner in their initiatives.”
Another showcase partner is Vetrazzo’s recycled glass countertops. All glass used in Vetrazzo is recycled, and it makes up about 85% of the final material by weight. The glass comes from curbside recycling programs, post industrial usage, windows, dinnerware, stemware, automotive windshields, stained glass, laboratory glass, reclaimed glass from building demolition, and other unusual sources such as decommissioned traffic lights.
