At Wade Ceramics, we’re always keen to improve our environmental practices. Not all industrial manufacturing is damaging to the environment; at Wade, we are conscientious about running our production line in a sustainable way that is as eco-friendly as possible.
Re-using broken pieces of ceramic for artistic and home renovation projects is widespread, but we like to take things further. That’s why we practice sustainable manufacturing by recycling waste heat, waste water and excess clay for maximum use. We also save on road miles – and associated emissions – by always trying to source our raw materials locally. And that’s not all. Our porcelain is lead-free (Proposition 65), 100% food-safe and ISO9001:2015 certified. We simply wouldn’t have it any other way.

Wade Ceramics has a culture of ‘reduce, re-use, recycle’. Combining the practices below gives us a manufacturing process we can be proud of. Looking to the future, we will further reduce our ecological impact as we continue to strive for a greater sustainable culture in our work environment.
The heat generated from the kilns’ exhaust stacks and compressors is reused to dry products, heat the factory and warm the products in certain production areas.
