  Managing nature's resources responsibly (.PDF Format, 46 KB)

Managua, Nicaragua: Conipisos crafts its tiles in Nicaragua, a land of spectacular natural diversity. Preserving that natural beauty is a vital part of the company's values and practices.
Founder and President, Marcos Cajina, derives constant inspiration from the varied and vibrant colors and textures of his native Nicaragua. He recognizes the importance of producing sustainably and has developed three main themes to guide the company:
1. Manage Nature's Resources Responsibly
Sun dry and cure
Recycle water
Recycle and salvage molds
Use sparingly hydraulic energy
Use local materials: sand, soap stone, limestone
2. Do Not Contribute to Landfills
Production process creates no waste
Loose cement mix swept up and re-used
Tiles not passing quality control are broken up and used in mix
Left over sand is used for on-site construction projects
Tiles packed in recyclable cardboard boxes
Tiles are very long lasting. They do not have to be ripped out and replaced;
at the end of their life cycle, they can be broken up and re-used for paving.
3. Do Not Use Toxins
Achieve slip resistance without the use of acid chemicals
Pigments are from naturally occurring iron oxides
