Dedicated to improving the environment, EcoStar manufactures roofing tiles that are composed of up to 80% recycled post-industrial rubber and plastic. These post-industrial materials consist of waste that includes car bumpers and baby diaper production remnants. The manufacture of EcoStar tiles prevents these materials from ending up in landfills. Because of their recycled content, EcoStar roofing tiles feature incredible strength and flexibility and provide long-lasting performance. Cool colors, available with Empire Slate™and Empire Shake™ reduce energy consumption used for cooling resulting in energy savings.
The use of EcoStar products also preserves valuable natural resources, as no trees are cut and no slates are quarried in the production of EcoStar's Seneca Shake™ and EcoStar's Empire Shake™, Majestic Slate™ and Empire Slate™ tiles.
Because of their eco-friendly efficiency, EcoStar products can significantly contribute toward LEED® credit requirements. Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) is the national standard for the development of high-performance sustainable buildings.
