Sustainability is improving the quality of human life while living within the carrying capacity of supporting eco-systems.
WHY IS COPPER SUSTAINABLE?
When you purchase a Bevolo lantern, you're making a lifetime investment! For 70+ years, Bevolo has handcrafted lanterns in New Orleans from the highest quality American mined copper. Copper is a corrosive resistant, malleable, durable, long-lasting metal that responds well to temperature extremes. These properties make copper an excellent material for our fixtures and a popular building material for roofs, flashings, gutters, domes, vaults, and doors. For these reasons, copper has been used in architecture for hundreds of years. Although the initial investment for copper is greater than other metals like aluminum and zinc, it pays for itself in performance and lifespan.
WHY IS BEVOLO SUSTAINABLE?
- Our lanterns are handcrafted from the purest American copper. We pride ourselves on fixtures that are lifetime products and will be in your family for generations to come. Bevolo uses hand-set copper rivets in its production. Other light fixtures use solder to hold their fixtures together which weaken and break over time reducing the lifespan of the products.
- Our patented gas jet assembly is the most efficient and cost-effective burner in the world. Bevolo's gas burners were designed to provide a unique "bat-wing" shaped flame while offering the lowest BTU rating in the industry.
- Our electric lights can be seamlessly integrated with LED and other energy-efficient light sources without compromising the old-world look. Bevolo also offers lanterns as Energy star approved.
- Copper is an organic material that can last up to 300 years, and it is a recyclable material. Bevolo recycles all of our scrap copper reducing landfill waste and preventing further copper mining.
