Recycled materials deliver some interesting alternatives for countertop selection. Some are made from recycled paper and combined with resins to form a surface that’s hard yet warmer than stone, and others are made from recycled glass held together with either cement or resin. We also offer counters made of post consumer metal content or quartz. The eco-friendly nature of these choices will also give you the satisfaction of having helped the environment. We at All Eco Center take great care when selecting affiliates. We are confident in our selections because we perform the stone masonry and installation ourselves. The counter top manufacturers we work with are thoughtful in their selection of sustainable materials and we take pride in offering products we have confidence in. They meet a variety of green standards and sustainability requirements. These innovative and earth-conscious counter tops are made from a range of materials, each environmentally friendly in their own way.
