The Healthy Materials Summit on October 26th was an awesome event! We couldn't have put everything together without the help of a hosting committee, the volunteers, and especially our sponsors. We want to thank Coldspring for making the Summit a success!
Coldspring is one of the largest natural stone manufacturers, providing commercial, landscaping, memoralization, and residential customers with materials. Historically a granite-producing company, for many years Coldspring has evolved in the manufacturing and distribution of bronze memorials and signage, diamond tools, cemetery building consulting and construction services, and other materials such as marble, limestone, sandstone, and composites for specialized applications.
Coldspring has a devotion to sustainability, and will continue to innovate and promote a sustainable future. Their focus on stone allows their designs to stand the test of time better than many other materials – largely due to its incredible durability – and in turn, leading to the lowest embodied energy of any material.
Sustainability goes beyond just materials for them, and moves into process. Coldspring's foundry and other non-stone operations utilize sustainable practices.
