About the Aurora Glass Foundry
There was a small mountain of glass growing off I-5 near Portland and it needed to go somewhere... it was destined for the landfill. St. Vincent de Paul of Lane County took note, and from that the Aurora Glass Foundry was born. Since then Aurora Glass has become an innovative resource for the community, recycling old windows and other waste glass previously without a recycling avenue. Proceeds fund St. Vincent de Paul's charitable endeavors in Lane County, Oregon.
Aurora Glass is part of St. Vincent de Paul's strategic recycling initiative for a healthier community. We manufacture our popular line of products for wholesale and retail sale, as well as create custom works large and small. All profits from Aurora are returned to the community in the form of affordable houing, job creation and emergency services.
Through art and craftsmanship, Aurora Glass recycles discarded window glass transforming it into decorative and useful items. Our mission is to reduce the amount of glass in the landfill, be a positive example to our community and support the mission of St. Vincent de Paul. We want our customers to be more than just satisfied, we want you to be happy. That is why all Aurora Glass products are 100% guaranteed in workmanship and quality. We look forward to serving you.
