Countertop Series, Part 3 – Eco By Cosentino
Their website says, “ECO by Cosentino is an original product manufactured from 75% recycled materials such as mirror, glass, porcelain, earthenware and vitrified ash. Even 94% of the water used in its manufacturing process is re-used. It’s a new product that embraces sustainability, design, and quality that has produced a new category of recycled surfaces. These are an ecological alternative to similar surfaces available for construction and decoration. All the manufacturing processes comply with high environmental standards; which makes ECO by Cosentino a highly sustainable and unique product.”
I love that they’re made by using things that would otherwise end up in a landfill, and I’m crazy about the little sparkly bits in it. We picked up a couple of samples of it at Home Depot a while back, and I’ve had to resist the urge to craft them into earrings.
And although my favorite Eco color is Crystal Ash, HGTV’s Sarah Richardson used their “White Diamond” on top of the cabinets in the kitchen below and I think it looks pretty fantastic, too:
I’ll be back tomorrow with a post about another one of my favorite kinds of countertops. Kevin and I are visiting some folks who have a slab of it today and I can’t wait to see it in person!
