A Chat with Recycled Granite
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? At the Recycled Granite Eco store we offer hand crafted products such as cheese trays, wine stoppers, whiskey stones, tile, fire pits, pavers, and beautiful gemstone jewelry. Each piece is handmade by people with disabilities.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? Granite countertops are beautiful but do you know what happens to all of the sink cut-outs? Typically, they are thrown into landfills. At Recycled Granite we divert the material and manufacture it into a variety of products that are created by Recycled Granite Artisans (special needs adults).
What do you love most about your job? The opportunity to identify the abilities in people with special needs. All of our products are made by Recycled Granite Artisans and they are very proud of their work.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer? The first thing everyone says to us is: what a great idea! Then, when they find out how our products are made they are happy to know that we are a triple bottom line company. People, profit, and planet.
