Here is one of the best looking, green countertop products on the market. And it is beautiful!! IceStone is made of 70-75% recycled material (glass mostly); of that, the post-consumer percentage is quite low (1-20%) but it is still a great product for LEED certification applications. IceStone is available in a wide variety of colors, some very bright and some neutral. My favorites are the Alpine White and White Pearl for neutrals and the Pistachio Pearl (green) for a bright accent. This product is just as beautiful in person as you would hope for it to be. It feels similar to Corian, even more stone-like, but it looks much more beautiful because of the array of glass moving through it. Some colors, usually on the more expensive side, even have white iridescent pieces of shell throughout, which is a gorgeous touch.
