If you are looking for a new look for your kitchen counter but you don’t necessarily want to go with something as heavy looking as granite or a product that looks like stone, consider a recycled glass kitchen countertop instead. Choose from several color combinations, including this interesting green/rust/black palette.
This type of countertop is a green decorating choice because glass that may otherwise end up in landfills is recycled and used for a new purpose.
The cement used to make some countertops is mixed with fly ash. This is a waste product left over when coal is burned that usually ends up being transported to landfills.
The advantage to choosing a recycled glass countertop is that it is easy to keep clean. Soap and water will keep it looking great.
You may need to reseal it every few years, though. Be sure to ask the retailer about the right procedure for sealing your countertop when you make your selection.
