ATELIER SO GREEN attaches special importance to the manufacture of its products. Close attention is paid to each and every stage of the process, from selection of materials to finish.
We focus our efforts on providing aesthetic, long-lasting solutions that harmonise with their surroundings. Commitment is one of the company’s founding values, and has been expressed from its very beginnings through attentiveness to our customers’ needs and expectations, as well as through our product design and manufacture processes. It is commitment that inspires all the company’s initiatives.
Our workshop is a craft business guaranteeing 100% French manufacture. Our materials and accessories all come from Europe, mainly from France.
ATELIER SO GREEN is located in Touraine, in the heart of an industrial park for small businesses.
We attach great importance to our skilled, local workforce and the use of top-of-the-range tools, guarantees of our employees’ safety and the quality of our products.
Committed as we are to rational consumption, we have chosen to use such long-lasting materials as fibre cement, Ductal concrete, aluminium, bicomponent PU paints and finishing varnishes in order to ensure lasting quality.
Commitment to optimised management of materials and equipment. Eternit fibre cement is a mineral material used in green construction due to its inherent qualities. Eternit is now an eco-responsible supplier in its own right, with ISO14001 certification.
Our bicomponent polyurethane paints and glues are manufactured in France. We use paints similar to those used in the automotive sector: LOW VOC (High Solid: HS) ensuring compliance with the law on limitation of emissions of volatile organic compounds (2004/42/EC). VOC value < 420G/L.
We produce no paint waste; all residual paint is used to weatherproof the insides of our planters.
With a view to reducing offcuts (<10%), we use software designed to optimise cutting. Offcuts are reused to manufacture sample cards and small presentation planters.
Workshop waste is sorted and recycled at a specialised treatment facility (rubble, paper and cardboard, and wood).
