Fuez Recycled Glass Counters
If you’re on the West Coast and looking for an alternative to Icestone or other hard surfaces made with recycled glass, check out Fuez.
The green story here is mainly that the material contains recycled glass. Darker colors also contain fly ash, a byproduct of coal power plants, a proven way to make concrete less energy intensive. And the company also claims that the product is produced using mostly wind energy, which is nice.
We like the terrazzo-like gleam of this type of surface, but it can be quite cumbersome and expensive to work with the slabs: professional fabrication is a must. We’re keeping our eyes peeled for a product that puts recycled glass into a thin, strong, and DIY-friendly tile.
