Caesarstone® believes in symbiotic sustainability, which is the art of living together, where our Earth is shared by all, nature and people, as one greater ecosystem. Our products and practices drive human responsibility towards the environment and society by creating a connection with nature from the heart of the home. In our entire life cycle, Caesarstone® nurtures symbiotic sustainability.

One of nature’s most durable materials, quartz, is the world’s most abundant mineral – silica or silicon dioxide (SiO2). Found almost everywhere on the earth’s surface – constituting approximately 12% of its crust, its long-lasting durability, and the fact that it is stain, scratch, and heat-resistant and entirely non-toxic means that Caesarstone® products have a relatively small eco-footprint, making it the ideal eco-friendly choice.
