Green Alternatives for Countertops

Astute eco-reader David sends in this helpful missive:

“We just found a great posting on green alternatives for countertops. The list includes Richlite (used in a new green house in Claremont, pictured at left) and others. It also talks about why other materials are not so eco-friendly.”

The list is at Get With Green, which says it is “the green product resource for your home remodel.” The list includes the pros, cons and an eco-analysis of these counter materials: granite, engineered stone, solid surface, ceramic tile, laminates, wood or butcher block, stainless steel, soapstone, marble, concrete, glass and composite/recycled materials.

Thanks, David. This site and posting is a great find!
