Cover Your Bathroom In Old Airplane Parts

Starting just this summer, a company called CoveringsETC is offering 100% recycled and 100% recyclable textured tile made out of recovered aircraft fuselages (the tiling is called Bio-Luminum)—and ahem, yes, it’s stuff that you’d actually want in your own home! (Think: A kitchen backsplash.) The idea is that parts from airplane graveyards all over the world are melted into blocks and then sliced up to create lightweight textured tile. And better yet? CoveringsETC hopes to get to the point where the material is sourced and produced locally. Kinda nifty, no? [Re-Nest]
