Recycled Paper Countertops - One Of Many Options Available

Not so many years ago, Corian was all the rage, then granite came on the scene and every upscale home featured those counters.

Recently, as people have started to care more about their impact on the environment, lots of green alternatives have become available, and recycled paper countertops are just one option - but they're a great one!

Most companies that make these green counters do so from 100& post-consumer recycled paper, which is great.

In a nutshell, they take the recycled paper, saturate it with a special resin (which is also environmentally friendly), and then use heat to fuse many layers of paper together, which forms the countertop.

They may also add pigment for coloring, so you can find recycled paper countertops in a variety of different colors.
