Recycled Glass Tile

Recycling glass is no longer just a trend which provides a consumer niche, it has become a "future proof", established and vitally important business. Recycled glass tile is technically as well as environmentally sound. When these tiles are well made the strength and absorption properties are often even better than that required by the ASTM.
Recycling of glass into tile reduces the need for landfills and supports the viability of recycling programs. It also helps with reducing the storage space needed for recycled glass, and reduces fossil fuel consumption. This is because it takes less energy to re-form glass than it actually does to create tiles from scratch.
