The Master Bath
The floors in the Smart Home's master bath are tiled with recycled marble, and the green tile in the shower area of the bathroom is made from recycled Chardonnay bottles. "The countertops are made from fly ash [a byproduct of coal production] but also recycled porcelain, so there are pieces of toilets, sinks and bathtubs in the countertops," Rashford says.
