Green living is hot, hot, hot right now, and everyone seems to be looking for ways to reduce their environmental footprint in any way they can, particularly in decorating. One of my favorite environmentally friendly products is Vetrazzo, a surface manufacturing company that produces cement based slabs infused with recycled glass products. 100% of the glass is reused, coming from either curbside recycling or from post-consumer manufacturing, such as discarded bottles from the Skyy Vodka and Heineken factories. If you get lucky, you might even get a piece of glass in your surface that contains a leftover bottle label! Although it is technically a manmade product, 85% of the entire surface is recycled! Whether you decide to use it for a tabletop, kitchen counter or backsplash, you can feel good about having a chic, beautiful and eco-friendly surface!
