genuinely sustainable. genuinely premium.
the new Cristadur® Green line
The CRISTADUR® Green Line marked the start of a new chapter in the story of SCHOCK’s quartz composite sinks. All our sinks are produced with up to 75% quartz sand from the local region and in a range of attractive colours and designs. In addition to that, we also developed this sink material, which consists of ~ 99 % natural, renewable or recycled raw materials and sets special standards of aesthetics with our whitest white, blackest black and new in 2022, an earthy shade of taupe.
The Green Line models are loved for their sustainable designer characteristics and all of the premium features that come with CRISTADUR®. Like all our sinks, they are carbon neutral.
And when the most sustainable SCHOCK quartz composite sinks reach the end of a long and happy lifetime and it’s time to choose a new one, our recycling technology means that we can put the used sinks right back into our closed loop. They will then be reused, without any loss of quality, for the production of new sinks – which will go on to be a pleasure in the kitchen even more sustainably.

RETURNABLE SINKS FOR ADDED
with our closed cycle
SINK GREEN is a holistic mindset extending across the entire product lifecycle. Because even though our highly sustainable SCHOCK sinks are made to last, they will still need to be replaced at some point. This is where our cutting-edge recycling technology comes in: your CRISTADUR® Green Line model goes back into OUR closed cycle and is recycled by us into new sinks.
We are already using this system to recycle used materials from our Green Line production process into new products. However, our ultimate goal is to enable our customers in Germany by 2021 to easily and conveniently return CRISTADUR® Green Line old sinks to our closed cycle.
CRISTADUR® GREEN LINE IS SUSTAINABLY IMPRESSIVE – AND JURIES LOVE IT.
We are delighted that our commitment has attracted so much attention and that we are with the CRISTADUR® Green Line, are among the finalists for the German Sustainability Award in the design category, have been shortlisted for the Green Product Award and nominated by the jury for the PlusX Award. We strive to continue being green all round. Not for awards, but for the future.
THE POPULAR CRISTADUR® GREEN LINE CONTINUES TO GROW
Green now comes in pure white, jet black or taupe.
Having premiered our pure white in 2021 with the colour Day, along with its jet black counterpart, Night, we have now launched Twilight, a special shade of taupe that brings the nude trend into the kitchen. And the best thing about it? All of the sustainable colours are green at heart.
