FREEPORT, NY, March 29, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Hastings Tile & Bath, the premier importer and distributor of contemporary bath products for over 125 years, is pleased to announce that they are showcasing the newest collection of sustainable tiles from long-time supplier Oceanside Glasstile. The new collection, named Blue, is a fundamental shift in sustainability, as it promotes social and economic justice as well as sustainable lifestyles.
BLUE hits the market boasting post-consumer recycled content percentages as high as 82%. This characteristic lends itself to LEED accreditation and does so with the highest quality, handcrafted mosaics. The mosaic line is responsibly sourced, obtaining recycled product through curbside recycling programs, is handcrafted in North America and priced competitively for its class. Poised to deliver sophisticated design, BLUE launches with 6 colors and 4 blends that are available in 2 patterns ¾" x ¾" and ¾" x 3 3/8" and is complemented by 3 classic liners. The spiraling milky opals conjure mid-century nostalgia, while the naturally earthy translucence plays nicely with all finishes. This collection sings loud and clear with resonant beauty while answering the call for ecologically sound material.
"Concern for the environment is not a passing fad," says Kevin Mashia, director of tile products at Hastings Tile & Bath. "It's incumbent upon us, as distributors to stand behind the products we sell, and because Oceanside Glasstile's mission and commitment is in keeping with ours, we are proud to promote this new and beautiful line."
Hastings Tile & Bath will have the collection available in both of their showrooms; in the A+D building in NYC, and in the Chicago Merchandise Mart. Along with tiles, Hastings is proud to be the exclusive importers and distributors of other sustainable and important contemporary product lines such as Vola and Sonia.
