  1. Silestone
  2. Quartz
  3. Natural Stone

1) Silestone

Silestone is an eco-friendly countertop manufactured from 75 percent recycled materials, such as mirror glass, vitrified ash, earthenware, and porcelain. It protects the environment during its extraction, manufacturing, and installation. The minerals used to make Silestone are from quarries that get restored through strict stewardship programs.

2) Quartz

Quartz is the most common countertop material in many homes due to its beautiful appearance. It comprises crushed natural stone bound together by epoxy resin into slabs that can be used for countertops. That makes it more eco-friendly than most countertop materials. It’s also helpful to know installing engineered stone countertops is easy.

3) Natural Stone

Natural stone countertops are entirely made of natural materials, making them the most eco-friendly countertop options. While some may argue that mining stone uses a lot of energy, the fact that natural stone lasts longer provides a durable surface. Excellent examples of natural stone countertops are marble and granite countertops.

Eco-Friendly Stone Countertop Design

There are many eco-friendly countertops, including FSC-certified wood countertops. However, the sleek design and appearance of eco-friendly stone countertops make them the number one choice in many homes. They comprise sustainable materials that don’t harm the environment. Besides, their manufacturing process is eco-friendly.
