What Do These Three Things Have In Common?

Although walls, floors and airplanes aren't usually in the same category, they are today! Can you guess what these three things have to do with each other? It's a new green product that's hit the market and you know how much we love new shiny things!

Bio-Luminum Tiles are made from recycled and retired airplanes. We know there's more than a small handful of these giant flying air buses that are taken out of service each year. Sometimes they're sold for scrap, other times they're gutted for their materials and on occasion, sold to Mythbusters for some crazy experiment.

They are a wealth of materials just waiting to be reused and although sometimes they're sold for scrap, we like the strides that Bio-Luminum has made in the last several years. You can chose to have your tiles be smooth and shiny, or more "authentic" with rivets, dings and dents — just like a real airplane. They're cleaned, given a beveled edge and cut to size, all before they make their way into your kitchen or bath.

You can contact Bio-Luminum for more information and pricing depending on the project you have in mind! It's a great way to keep something massive out of a landfill and you're sure to be the hit of the party when you tell your guests your tile is made from real airplane (though we ask you refrain from making any seats in upright position jokes).
