Material or Product

Bedrock Glass Tile

Source

A creative company that manufactures a wide array of products - all handcrafted from 100 percent recycled glass. Its line of Blazestone tiles are crafted entirely from post-industrial and post-consumer glass, with no additional oxides or colorants or pigments. Each tile is handmade from unique combinations of glass that give the tiles their distinctive appearance and subtle color variation. Bedrock Blazestone shows how beautiful sustainability can be. Bedrock has recycled literally hundreds of tons of material that would otherwise have gone into landfills. Bedrock also uses 100 percent recyclable materials for product packaging and shipping. The company has established and continues to operate several community-based programs including a bottle drive, student tours of its plant and a special bottle drive for the parents and students of a local elementary school. Earnings from the school drive have helped to pay for student field trips and other educational activities. Bedrock is a for-profit business - not a foundation or an agency. Bedrock works very hard to be a shining example of a for-profit organization with a total commitment to sustainability, good employment practices, and responsible community service practices. This is not the easiest way to operate, but it’s important to the company to demonstrate that creative recycling can stand on its own right here in the United States.
