At the 32nd annual conference of the California Resource Recovery Association, Vetrazzo, LLC was honored with the “Outstanding Closing the Loop Commitment” Award. The award is given to an organization, government agency or business that has created a product with high recycled content or has employed a forward-thinking, eco-conscious program. Composed of 100% recycled glass, Vetrazzo’s green kitchen countertops feature a surface with bold particulates that are sure to provide a wow factor from any viewpoint in the room. The company resources the glass from a variety of places, including curbside recycling programs, reclaimed glass from building demolitions, decommissioned traffic lights and automotive windshields.
Taking cradle to cradle planning into consideration, this innovative company urges consumers to send back their materials should they decide to remove a Vetrazzo installation. Not that anyone will likely want to. Made in the U.S.A, this stunning surfacing material may well be a homeowner’s way of expressing their respect for the environment without sacrificing style. The company web site lists public installations of Vetrazzo 100% recycled glass countertops to allow potential buyers to personally experience the look and feel of the product. Founded in 1996, Vetrazzo is the original recycled glass surfacing material.
