Four Great Reasons to Choose Recycled Glass

Glass doesn’t always necessarily have to be translucent. While sure, that’s part of its appeal, glass is as much of a blank canvas as any other material. It can be dyed a certain color or painted any hue under the rainbow. It just depends on the glass manufacturer you choose.

Here at CBD we don’t work with typical recycled glass products (like glass bottles), but we do re-purpose large pieces of glass for some of our products.  Check out some great reasons to work with CBD Glass!

1. It’s Better for the Environment

Today, everyone does their part for a greener and happier Mother Nature. When we recycle, those materials can sometimes be turned into beautiful things, such as glass. This glass is made of pane or window glass as well as other large slabs of glass that were disposed of. These glass chunks are melted down to make tables, chairs, and other accent items.

By choosing a recycled glass item, you’re making a sustainable, green, and smart choice. That’s one you should be proud of.

2. Recycled Glass Is Often More Affordable

Redecorating your home can often be quite an expensive endeavor. You have to plan and budget for months to make everything happen.

Wouldn’t it be nice if some items you wanted came a bit cheaper than you anticipated?

This doesn’t have to be a dream, not if you buy recycled glass. This glass, given its nature (as we explained above) is often more affordable compared to other materials. After all, it costs less to manufacture, so recycled glass tends to be sold cheaper.

That’s a win for you. You can keep some cash in your pocket that you can use for other things while still getting the glass item of your dreams.


3. More Colors!

Also, as we mentioned, glass doesn’t always have to be translucent. There are so many options out there if you’re creative and know where to look.

Our recycled glass is not naturally colorful, however here at CBD Glass, we can backpaint your glass accent piece to be any color of the rainbow, giving you a multitude of options. You can enjoy chunks of color spread throughout your glass countertop, bar top, table, or chair. It’s like your very own piece of artwork.

4. Each Item Is Unique

Calling recycled glass a work of art is not a far cry at all. These items are absolutely beautiful, and—since they’re so sustainable—will probably become more common in the years to come.

Don’t be surprised if, after you get a recycled glass item, your neighbors copy you. That doesn’t matter though because the beauty of glass, especially from CBD, is in its uniqueness. Even if you and your neighbor bought the exact same item, they would never look identical.

The glass used for one item to another is never exactly the same, which guarantees that every recycled glass item you choose is completely one-of-a-kind. It’s hard to say that about home décor, so take pride in this!
