September 3, 2012

What do we love about Oceanside Glasstile? In addition to their beautiful, one-of-a-kind handcrafted creations, we admire their dedication to sustainability and community outreach. In fact, their tile was recently selected by our most recent San Jose and Saratoga remodeling projects (pictures above and below).

Oceanside Glasstile creates their luxury glass tile using recycled bottle glass. Their materials are designed to work together in a broad range of translucent and iridescent colors that can be easily combined to provide the homeowner with limitless possibilities for their kitchen or bath remodel.

How is Oceanside Glasstile made? It’s created from silica sand and recycled bottle glass that consists of:

  • Scrap and trimmings never used in the consumer market
  • Material from manufacturing processes where virgin resources would otherwise go to waste
  • Glass products that have completed their life cycle as a consumer item and would otherwise have been disposed of as a solid waste

In fact, they recycle more than two millions pounds of post consumer glass bottles every year! They’ve also adopted green business practices that include energy reduction and elimination of waste.

Community outreach is an important element to Oceanside Glasstile as well, which they show by supporting various philanthropic organizations that improve their community socially, environmentally and economically.
