Glass Bottle Recycling for Countertops

By
Home Builder with NOVA Pros

A company just recently posted an article on my website that shows a unique way to recycle glass bottles.  They use them to make countertops. I thought that was a great idea and wanted to share the article with you.

Wow Allison, it's amazing what they are doing with recycled materials now! Just another reason to recycle your old bottles and such instead of throwing them all away!

It's about time we have some new options for countertops. I've seen enough granite to last a lifetime.

Thanks Vicki and Michael for your comments.  I am so interested in all the alternatives, and to find out that they are environmental friendly as well, is great.

Also - will you allow me to post these comments on my website with the article?  I will add your website as a reference point back to you.

That's quite interesting Allison.  I had recently seen a simple concrete countertop that really looked good with a neutral stain incorporated into it.  The glass is an excellent addition.  Thanks for the site, too.

There was a home show on the other day (can't remember which one) and the owners chose this for the countertops.   It was gorgeous!!   In the next year or so we'll be replacing our counterops and I'm definately going to keep my eyes out for the recycled glass tops.

I use to work in the concrete business, and it is amazing that just about any "old" laying around material can now be used in countertops (mosaic pieces, glass pieces, beads, marbles, metal shavings, coins, - just about anything you want to embody into a concrete countertop, you can), and it looks great.

Allison, Icestone is a fabulous "green" counter alternative.  You can go on their webaite and order samples to keep on hand for clients.  I love their stuff!
