Cosentino, the world’s largest maker of quartz, has just launched an eco-friendly countertop called ECO by Cosentino. The new countertop is the embodiment of six million dollars of research over a three year period. It’s available nationally through Lowe’s at a price of $68-$118, depending on thickness and color. ECO contains 75% post-consumer and post-industrial recycled raw materials and 25% natural elements.
These countertops are made from salvaged mirrors, window and bottle glass, porcelain from home products, industrial furnace residuals from factories, stone scrap, and a proprietary bond containing 22% corn oil resin.
ECO is available in ten colors and the company indicates that the new countertop is a durable product with high stain, scratch, and scorch performance. ECO by Cosentino is GREENGUARD certified for low chemical emissions and can help contribute towards LEED certification.
