We are very excited to be able to offer our customers the entire line of ECO countertops from Cosentino Surfaces. Although there are many different “environmentally friendly” countertops available, we believe that the ECO countertop line is one of the most environmentally conscious surfaces available.
Created from Recycled Materials
ECO countertops are created by combining 75 percent recycled materials with 25 percent natural stone and ecological resin to create a durable countertop that can withstand the wear and tear of everyday. ECO takes mirrors, glass, porcelain, earthenware and vitrified ash and divert them from landfills to give them a new use. By recycling these materials, Cosentino Surfaces has created a sustainable product that will work beautifully within your home.
The Environmental Benefits
Cosentino has designed their entire ECO manufacturing process to be environmentally friendly and sustainable. The company re-uses 94 percent of the water from the manufacturing process and it saves energy by not using new raw materials. Its sophisticated machinery is able to reduce emissions and filter 99 percent of the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from production. Cosentino also uses no solvents when cleaning and maintaining the machinery that produces ECO countertops. It is clear that Cosentino understands that their environmental stewardship is important to their customers, and they actively seek out the best ways to ensure that ECO is a sustainable product.
Great for Your Home
In addition to all of the benefits that ECO products provide for the planet, they also offer several great benefits for your home. These countertops are incredibly hard, varying between five and seven on the Mohs hardness scale. This strength makes them incredibly resistant to scratching, chemical etching and impact. In addition to their durability, ECO countertops are highly nonporous, which means they do not absorb water or stain easily. They are simple to clean and require no sealing over their lifetime.
