-- ATLANTA – Construction Resources offers environmentally-
friendly and locally-manufactured countertops by Vetrazzo. The recycled glass surface is locally produced at the Vetrazzo plant in Tate, Ga.
“Vetrazzo offers an incredible countertop solution for the eco-conscious consumer,” said Mitch Hires, president and co-owner of Construction Resources. “Not only is the material made of recycled glass, it is locally produced about 60 miles north of Atlanta, minimizing emissions from transportation of the finished product.”
Vetrazzo is a unique surface comprised of glass and concrete. All glass is recycled and makes up about 83 percent of the final material by weight. Each shard of glass in Vetrazzo countertops tells a story. The largest proportion of glass comes from curbside recycling programs, but glass also comes from post industrial usage, dinnerware, stemware, automotive windshields, stained glass, laboratory glass and other unusual sources such as decommissioned traffic lights. When a buyer purchases Vetrazzo, a Certificate of Transformation is provided, revealing exactly where the glass in the countertop came from.
Construction Resources offers Vetrazzo as well as many other environmentally-
friendly materials for new homes, remodeling projects and commercial installations. For more information on Vetrazzo, visit http://www.constructionresourcesusa.com
