Trinity Glass--The company that owns Squak Mountain Stone also has a product called Trinity Glass, an alternative to quartz counters that's made with 75% recycled glass. Trinity Glass brings a whole different aesthetic to the table from its companion product, Squak Mountain Stone. Trinity Glass is available with a do-it-yourself-er in mind. Trinity Glass Products contain 75 percent post-industrial and post-consumer recycled glass. Trinity's more natural look, as well as its versatility, are what set it part from other recycled glass surfaces. In addition to slabs for countertops and tabletops, Trinity is available in tiles for wall applications and can be molded into sinks. It can be machined to have a smooth edge and, because of its high glass content, is highly scratch-resistant. As with granite, with proper sealing, Trinity will also resist stains long-term. www.trinityglassproducts.com
