Upcycle Tuesday!

Yesterday I found out that we would be redoing the bathroom and kitchen in my Grandmother's house in Antigua. Never one to be left out I contributed my 2 cents and said we should make it eco friendly. I started researching right away and was excited to find so many green options for flooring counter tops etc. I was really impressed by the new option for recycled glass tile back splash. What makes it more impressive is each tile takes half the energy to produce unlike a ceramic tile.

So the next time you recycle your bottle remember that someday it will be upcycled to a beautiful back splash in someone's eco friendly home!
