What Are the Most Sustainable Countertop Options?

What are your options when it comes to environmentally friendly countertops? Here are 4 of the most popular materials:

  • Recycled glass: Although requiring sealing due to the porous surface, recycled glass countertops are beautiful and offer variations in appearance. IceStone countertops are one of the most popular brands.
  • Recycled paper and plastic: Other sustainable options are solid surface countertops made from recycled paper and resins or recycled, postindustrial plastics. PaperStone® is one of the most commonly installed brand of recycled paper countertops.
  • Bamboo: Bamboo is another option if you’re trying to stay green. A renewable resource, bamboo is not only eco-friendly but also stronger than a lot of other hardwoods. It can complement rustic, transitional and contemporary kitchens.
  • Reclaimed butcher block: Another material that works well in both rustic and modern spaces, wood can be a sustainable option. Butcher block comprises smaller pieces of wood and can be made from reclaimed or repurposed material.
