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.
