A New Kind of Green at HLC and Hall China

Maryland Refractories and Earth Fire Surfaces has announced that they have partnered with Homer Laughlin China and Hall China to eliminate their porcelain waste. This recycled waste will now be used in table tops, shower bases, vanity/bathroom surfaces, kitchen counter tops, tiles of any size, and many other applications.
If you're going to this weekend's tent sale at the factory outlet, be sure to stop by the Maryland Refractories' tent beside the Hall China tent to see the great stuff coming from the remains of broken Fiesta and HLC and Hall commercial wares!
