Environmentally friendly eco countertops can still look and perform great.

Are you searching for the best kitchen countertops for your space? Consider constructing it using eco-friendly materials.


Explore These Beautiful Kitchen Countertop Design Options for Ideas!

You may be surprised to know that sustainable surfaces (think recycled glass, bamboo, concrete and even recycled paper) can also be attractive, high-quality and easy on the budget.

Eco-friendly countertops will not only add one-of-a-kind character to the kitchen, they'll also ease your conscience. Bamboo, for instance, is a renewable resource and a great alternative to wood because of its fast growth.

Blends of colorful recycled glass remnants can be incorporated into concrete countertops for a look and feel that mimics the color and texture of stone or engineered stone.

Consumers who are drawn to the time-tested, worn look of antique woods may see the potential in salvaged or reclaimed woods. These materials can add great color, texture and character to the kitchen for a look that's both eco- and rustic-chic. Post-consumer recycled paper composite, certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, is another eco-friendly countertop option that's similar in durability to wood.
