The Official Sign Of Spring ... Bistro Green.

Who cares about a groundhog... The official sign of Spring has arrived, Bistro Green Vetrazzo Slabs.
A warm breeze at a sidewalk café...a bottle of sparkling water or wine between you and a friend. Afterward, the plates are cleared and the bottles head toward their next destination to be brilliantly repurposed. To think, all you did was visit a friend.

When you take the extra step of putting your glass waste into the recycling bin, you're doing something good. Those bottles and jars that held all your culinary necessities are sent to be processed and put back into use. The glass in this mix is from your kitchen...your soda bottles, olive oil containers, pickle jars, wine and water bottles could have been waste. Instead here they are, made into something beautiful: Bistro Green

Cobalt Skyy ®

A festive evening with friends sampling savory treats and drinking top-shelf spirits poured from a lovely cobalt blue Skyy® Vodka bottle. The bottles from last night’s soiree become our top shelf mix.

Excellent vodka, poured from Skyy’s signature deep blue bottles, makes a fantastic cocktail. The bottles look lovely on the shelf, and while you're pouring the drinks, but after being recycled, they look even better in this Vetrazzo® mix: Cobalt Skyy.

Alehouse Amber

Drinking a cold one on a hot day. What could be nicer? Drop the empty into the recycling bin, kick back, and think how you just made the world a little better by sending that bottle on its way to a new life. Who knew it was so easy?

Glass Source Story
Those bottles and jars that held refreshments can now be processed and put back into use. The glass in this mix is from your recycling bin. They could have gone to the landfill, but instead they are in this gorgeous Vetrazzo mix; Alehouse Amber.

Cool Titanium

Cool Titanium
The smooth, subtle charm of cool titanium is as classic as the glass it's made from. Flint glass, the clear glass used in most jars, originated in England in the early 19th century. Not much has changed except that now little Johnny’s baby food jar can be preserved in a countertop of Vetrazzo.
The Glass Source 
Beginning over 300 years ago flint was used to produce an elegant glass that is the predecessor to English crystal. These days flint struts its stuff in rhinestones and continues to take on many humble forms as well, doing the excellent work of keeping food and drinks fresh in jars and bottles. We take what can't be used and transform it into sparkling flint glass Vetrazzo.
