Go Green with Beautiful Recycled Countertops
There is a misconception that going ‘green’ means you have to sacrifice some of your home’s aesthetic value. That could not be farther from the truth. In the case of countertops, for example, recycled content countertops can look just as beautiful and unique as natural stone. You simply have to know where to find the right eco-friendly recycled products that match your kitchen. Here are a few options courtesy of Coastal Living that may interest you.
• Cradle to Cradle Silver-certified IceStone uses post-consumer recycled glass to create glass-and-concrete surfaces in a variety of colors at prices comparable to high-quality granite.
• Renewed Materials LLC produces a modern eco-friendly look with Alkemi, made from 60 percent post-industrial scrap aluminum. This creates countertops that function like solid surfaces but look like art.
• For a natural-looking option that won’t off-gas, look to Richlite. The company specializes in high-quality paper-composite surfaces that are stain- and heat-resistant.
