Livinglass Uses Recycled Glass to Make Sustainability Top Priority in 2016

Livinglass is Saving the Planet

And Your Budget with GREEN GLASS

One of the biggest trends in architecture today is environmentally conscious design, and Livinglass has always been ahead of the curve in sustainability.

Livinglass is inspired by nature, and we have always looked for ways to push the envelope in terms of design and sustainability to offer maximum value to our clients.

Our LIGHT Collection is the first architectural decorative glass to use 100% recycled glass and resin.  Many of our products use recycled materials.

Stand out from the crowd with designs that truly inspire.


Livinglass has announced that it will be making sustainability one of its top priorities this year to encourage architects and designers to include more environmentally friendly materials and elements in their designs.  

With the signing of the Paris Climate Agreement last month, the momentum for sustainable building solutions is at an all-time high and continues to grow as companies and governments search for ways to mitigate their impact on the environment.  Nearly 90% of all Fortune 100 companies are already using sustainable materials and designs.  The new accord will only create more momentum for environmentally friendly solutions and strategies.

“Livinglass has always been a pioneer in the field of sustainable architecture,” said President Brett Lee.  “We were the first architectural decorative glass manufacturer to offer 100% recycled glass products, and now we want to make our impact even bigger.”

Livinglass is known for its one of kind, nature inspired architecture glass designs, which include plants like bamboo or flowers contained within decorative glass wall panels, or even a floor made of river stones within the glass.  Part of its mission to bring nature-inspired design into the architectural space has always been to promote and use eco-friendly materials, which include its Light line of decorative glass which uses 100% recycled glass and resins.

Livinglass is also uniquely poised to promote sustainability in the architectural decorative glass industry due to its collaborative design process with architects and designers. 

“Most glass manufacturers don’t take the time to offer custom solutions,” said Livinglass President Brett Lee. “Because we work directly with the designers to help them create custom glass samples for their projects, we have a unique opportunity to suggest eco-friendly solutions that can be made to fit into the designer’s vision and budget.”

Green buildings are exploding in popularity not only because they have a positive impact on the health of their inhabitants and promote renewable energy, but also because they save money and resources.  Eco-friendly design can create substantial savings for any new construction project by allowing the building to consume on average 25% less energy, 10% less water, and 20% lower maintained costs.

Environmentally conscious design is one of the biggest trends in architecture today, and Livinglass is at the head of the curve in bringing sustainable design options to the forefront of architectural glass design. 

Sustainable Design is:

  • Good for the Planet

  • Good for the Brand

  • Good for the Budget

  • Good for the Long Term

Even our most advanced architectural glass, Illumination, uses highly energy efficient LED light panels to keep your carbon footprint as low as possible.
