4. Recycled Glass
Trashed glass can be re-purposed into loads of useful materials for your home remodel, the most popular choices being reclaimed glass countertops and landscaping materials.
Dallas-based company Glass Recycled mixes crushed post-consumer and industrial glass with epoxy resin to form stunning terrazzo designs for countertops, flooring and landscaping. These upcycled picks are comparable in price to traditional terrazzo but come with a much smaller footprint.
Whenever possible, try to source your materials locally. If Dallas is a bit far from your neck of the woods, check out Granite Transformations – which boasts offices and showrooms around the world and features similar recycled glass products.
