Go Green With Reclaimed Coconut Tiles

A California company has begun offering wall tiles and panels made from reclaimed coconut shells. Kerie USA in Solans Beach, CA has developed a method of manufacturing the tiles from the discarded shells of coconuts harvested for their edible portions. Typically these shells would be burned or sent to land fills contributing to air pollution or landfill waste.

The coconut shells are glued to FSC certified plywood. A sustainably harvested wood backer uses low VOC resins to reduce harmful pollutants in your ambient atmosphere. The tiles come in 12″ X 12″ tile or 4′ X 4′ wall panel dimensions.

Kerie offers a fairly broad array of designs and textures. The tiles and panels can be used in numerous interior design and furniture applications making them perfect for cutting edge designers.

The tiles and panels obviously provide a very unique look and because they are LEED certified they are a great way to soak up some LEED credits for your next green building project.
