Mixed tumbled glass
or single colored glass makes a far out mulch in potted plants. It's also pretty cool in pathways!
Slightly damaged statuary.
Some of these great blue glass slabs came home with me. Don't know what I'll use them for yet but they sure are swell!
These glass light fixtures make great tables especially when filled with glass!
Bedrock believes in living on earth responsibly and acknowledging that the planet’s resources are limited. That’s why we make all of our tiles by hand in our own plant from 100% recycled glass. When we say “100% recycled,” we mean just that — all of our tile is made from recycled glass only. We do not use pigment in our glass.
We are proud to say that we have recycled literally hundreds of tons of material that would otherwise have gone into landfills.
We use 100% recyclable materials for product packaging and shipping. We have established and continue to operate several community-based programs including a bottle drive, student tours of our plant and a special bottle drive for the parents and students of a local elementary school. Earnings from the school drive have helped to pay for student field trips and other educational activities.
Bedrock is a for-profit business, which is the most exceptional thing of all. We are not a foundation or an agency. Bedrock works very hard to be a shining example of a for-profit organization with a total commitment to sustainability, good employment practices, and responsible community service practices. This is not the easiest way to operate, but it’s important to us to demonstrate that creative recycling can stand on its own right here in the United States.
There are always new bargains to discover like these vitreous glass tiles for only four bucks a sheet.
Always love the lollipops!
Glass traffic light lenses - Fun!
Broken column anyone?
Bedrock has all kinds of rock from fabulous hunks of marble countertop to pebbles in a variety of colors and sizes.
Drilled rock ready for a water feature.
Cloches made by cutting the bottom off of gallon wine bottles.
Everywhere you turn in this place, there is creative re use of materials.
Are these people cute or what?
And speaking of a whole wall done in those glass tiles...voila. I'm in love.
This stuff just screams to be used in mosaic applications like this faboo lamp.
This collection of glass blobs reminds me of hard candy!
The Garage Sale Room is full of fun finds.
I hope you enjoyed our little visit to Bedrock enough to make a trip there yourself. I never leave without finding something amazing here.
