Environmental Impact of Vero Lime Plasters

Environmental Impact of Vero Lime Plasters

Vero’s line of Rialto lime plasters are known for their striking beauty and old-world looks. Equally important are the green credentials of these products. Each pail of lime plaster (including Antiqua, Epoca Spatolato, Epoca Marmo, Natural Lime Plaster, and Epoca Ottocento) contains aggregates produced by the cutting of marble slabs at the quarry shown here in Carrara, Italy. The green credentials of Vero lime plasters are very compelling:

  • 50-65 percent post-industrial recycled content
  • All-natural raw materials (limestone, marble aggregate)
  • 28% lower CO2 emissions than regular stucco1
  • Very low VOCs (15 g/liter)

We know of no more sustainable interior/exterior finish than Vero lime plasters.  By using the marble aggregate created at the legendary Carrara marble quarries, Vero lime plasters turn a byproduct into a product feature and green credential.  The fine marble aggregate in these plasters helps achieve the authenticity in the limestone once applied to the wall.  Even after shipping these products across the Atlantic, these products are “greener” than traditional plaster finishes, and can qualify a project for LEED points under recycled content and innovation credits.

You can put these fine products to work on your next project knowing that you have made a responsible decision for our environment as well as a warm, welcoming atmosphere for the community to enjoy for years to come.

1 Vero research study from 2008 analyzed all mined raw materials, transportation, factory production, and ocean shipping CO2 emissions for U.S.-made
stucco (0.28 tons CO2 per ton mortar) versus imported Rialto lime plaster (0.20 tons CO2 per ton mortar)
