A California company is helping local communities remove ceramics from their landfills.
The company, the Turquoise Casteters, was founded by two brothers in 2006.
Its mission is to use the power of technology to help make ceramic tile the material of choice for home cleaning and to preserve the natural beauty of the landscape.
“We’ve been working for years to help people, and that’s been through ceramic tile,” founder James Turquise told ABC News.
“The idea is to help clean up the landscape and to make sure that the landscape is safe for future generations.”
The family-run business has made it a goal to remove more than 30 tons of ceramic each year from landfill sites.
It’s the company’s most popular product, but the team is also working on a new line of ceramic tiles, which can be used to make new ceramic tile.
For those interested in the business, there’s a waiting list.
