Hakatai, importer and distributor of glass mosaic tile since 1997, is excited to announce it is now a member of the U.S. Green Building Council, a non-profit organization that is committed to expanding sustainable building practices and sponsors the LEED Green Building Rating System™. Hakatai’s membership is a step forward in the realm of sustainable building and design, and exemplifies the Ashland, Oregon-based firm’s continued commitment to the environment.
The USGBC membership is of great value to Hakatai as they continue to expand their offerings of glass mosaic tile products with recycled glass content. Architects, specifiers, designers and homeowners can log on to www.hakatai.com to see Hakatai’s wide selection of glass tile products. Tile in several Hakatai series is comprised of between 30 and 70 percent glass from bottles and/or other waste glass that would otherwise have entered the solid waste stream.
