Chimney Pots Now Contribute Recycled Material
Design Credits to Building Projects
Sustainability, Safety and Quality Set European Copper Above Others

TULSA, Okla., – European Copper Chimney pots now contribute to the total cost and weight of recycled material in a building project, important to both architects and builders who want design credits for using recycled and innovative materials on their LEED certified projects.

With the trend of copper building products on the rise, homeowners are increasingly looking for ways to add this material to their home to increase value and curb appeal. Copper chimney pots from European Copper not only add a touch of high design to homes in all price ranges, they now officially contribute to the recycled material content of every project, are Cradle-to-Cradle Gold certified, UL-listed and 100 percent recyclable.

The Cradle-to-Cradle certification, developed by noted product design firm McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC), recognizes products whose materials are perpetually circulated in closed loops. As the title implies, a Cradle-to-Cradle product will never meet a landfill.

European Copper chimney pots were created by architect Jack Arnold as a solution to a design dilemma: how to add a high-end look to chimneys while improving the functionality in an eco-friendly way. European Copper chimney pots improve the chimney’s draft, keep out water and pests, and protect the home from mold and mildew.

European Copper chimney pots are the only chimney pots on the market today that are UL-listed for both masonry and metal flues. This quality standard signifies that the pots have met exacting engineering standards for heat and wind tolerance and efficiency in removing smoke from chimneys. They are the only product of its kind that works with both true masonry and pre-engineered metal fireplace systems.

“We know that sustainability is a growing demand among consumers,” said Arnold. “Our Cradle-to-Cradle certification and the design credits we contribute make our chimney pots a truly valuable asset to building projects around the world.”
