IceStone Releases a New Color: Confetti
Award winning recycled glass countertop manufacturer IceStone announces a new color to their line.
Brooklyn, NY – Just a few months removed from the new year, IceStone has released a new color conveniently named Confetti. The idea of Confetti was inspired by another IceStone color, Snow Flurry. While both colors contain the smallest glass aggregates out of all the IceStone’s colors, Confetti consists of red, green, blue, and clear glass, giving it a colorful and festive appeal. Confetti’s white background allows it to blend in with any design, while the addition of the colorful glass aggregates bring a bit of pop and flair.
“We’re very excited about Confetti. It’s been 4 years since we’ve introduced a new color. It takes years to properly develop a brand new color concept and pattern with extensive research, development, and testing. Using our existing Snow Flurry as the base for Confetti and adding existing colors of glass used elsewhere helped us develop Confetti in a few short months. It was a collaborative effort of our entire team choosing the colors, sizes and quantity to create the perfect ratio,” says IceStone’s President Lisa Bowen. With the goal of becoming a 100% sustainable company, the creation of Confetti allows IceStone to take advantage of extra glass in its inventory, thus establishing another way for IceStone to achieve its sustainability goals.
IceStone manufactures sustainable countertops and surfaces made from recycled glass, cement, and non-toxic pigments. Located in the Brooklyn Navy Yard in Brooklyn, NY, IceStone also practices sustainability in it’s factory using a recycling water system, electric/hybrid forklifts, steam powered kilns, and natural light. Employees earn a living wage, and have ownership in the company. IceStone has been in business for 15 years, and to date, has saved over 16 million pounds of glass from being dumped in landfills.
