IceStone is a durable surface made of 100% recycled glass and cement, the only surface to hold Cradle to Cradle Gold certification.

More about IceStone:
"Sustainability: IceStone is proud to be the first and only durable surface in the world to receive McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC)'s coveted Cradle to Cradle™ certification. Cradle to Cradle™ assesses products on a number of criteria, such as the use of safe and healthy materials, design for material reuse and recycling, efficient use of energy and water throughout production, and instituting strategies for social responsibility. At IceStone we manufacture our products with 100% recycled glass in a cement matrix, diverting hundreds of tons of glass from landfills each year. We operate out of a renovated, day-lit factory in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, creating U.S. green jobs for workers in an eco-friendly, safe, and respectful environment.
Design without compromise: At IceStone we are committed to creating surfaces for your home and commercial space that are both beautiful and sustainable. Our products offer classic and contemporary styles with 21st century intelligence. Whether your project calls for kitchen countertops, bathroom vanities, conference tables or patio surfacing, IceStone offers you cutting-edge design and positive environmental results.
Beauty: IceStone products come in a variety of shades, ranging from soft, earth-toned neutrals to rich, saturated colors. Our color palette is versatile, simulating the natural landscape or harmonizing with your home or office décor. Our surfaces come with a high polish but can be honed or sandblasted to achieve your desired look and texture. And unlike petrochemical based materials, IceStone surfaces do not fade with UV exposure."
