5 Interesting uses of Glass, Ceramic & Resin for your Resort

Glass is not believed to be a man-made product. Scientists claim that Mother Nature creates glass as well. Glass is formed when a molten material cools so rapidly that there is not enough time for a crystalline structure to form. For example, if lava from a volcano cools down rapidly a glass like rock is formed called obsidian. A wide variety of styles and uses makes glass decor a popular choice for many hotels and resorts.

Glass is made up of materials like sand, soda, ash and limestone. This makes glass completely recyclable. Recycled glass not only saves resources, it also is beneficial to the manufacturers as this recycled glass can substitute for 95% of raw materials.
