IceStone was founded by Miranda Magagnini and Peter Strugatz in 2003 with capital investment from angel investors such as Ben Cohen from Ben & Jerry’s, activist and author Dal LaMagna the founder of Tweezerman, Greg Steltenpohl from Odwalla, and Gary Hirshberg from Stonyfield Farm. From the beginning our simple mission was to transform waste glass into something beautiful while taking care of our employees and the planet at the same time. Since 2003, over 13 million pounds of waste glass have been redirected from landfills. In the process our team has developed an uncompromising balance of design and sustainability that has set IceStone apart from all other surfaces and companies. That balance and mission has been a guiding principle at our company to do our part in making the world a better place in the present and in the future.
As a founding B Corp, IceStone is a triple bottom line company that places value on People, Planet and Profit. We are 10% employee owned, provide health benefits, living wages, immigration assistance and life-skill training programs to all our employees who also participate in our profit sharing plan and have an active voice in the operation and direction of the company.
