Richlite paper-based countertops are a great alternative to stone and plastic surfaces. They are comprised of pulp from trees that are harvested in sustainable forests with closely-managed environmental mandates such as habitat conservation. They come in a variety of colors and options and are mostly stain resistant, scratch resistant and heat resistant.
