IceStone

IceStone designs and produces gorgeous, high-end, LEED-certified counter tops and flooring made with 75 percent recycled glass. Their goal is to turn waste glass into something beautiful, while offering a high-design new green material for interior design.

Aside from producing an attractive and sustainably made alternative to granite and other materials, IceStone has built sustainability into its overall business model. They are a certified B Corporation, are members of the US Green Building Council, and have cradle-to-cradle certification for their start-to-finish green practices.

IceStone estimates their work has saved over 17 million pounds of glass from landfills so far. They have made their employees partners of the company, and have stayed committed to manufacturing their product in the US, working from their base in the historic Brooklyn Navy Yard.
