From Soda Pop to Tabletop


Now you can remodel your way into an eco lifestyle.  Traditional petrochemical or marble-based countertops emit harmful VOCs and damage the earth with mining practices.  But IceStone’s durable surfaces offer an alternative: countertops, bathtubs, flooring, and more made from recycled glass and concrete. In fact, last year alone the company removed 2.6 million pounds of glass from the waste stream. With 24 standard colors available, you can find a shade to suit your bathroom, kitchen, and dining room.




It is my understanding that concrete (or rather, cement) is a very energy-intensive material to manufacture and ship, which would negate much of the green benefit of using recycled glass. Is this not true, or do you use a special, low-energy cement?
