What are the most eco-friendly countertops?

There are a number of environmentally friendly countertop options available for those looking to create a sustainable and eco-conscious space in their home. Some popular options include recycled materials such as paper countertops, wood countertops, or bamboo countertops. At Tops we are excited to fabricate and install ultracompact surface countertops, often simply referred to as porcelain countertops. This thrilling new product is already widely used in Europe and California today.

Ultracompact surfaces, such as those provided by vendors like Florim, Neolith, Lapitec, and Dekton, are an environmentally friendly choice for kitchen and bathroom surfaces. These surfaces are made from natural minerals (primarily clay a material utilized by humans since the dawn of time) and recycled materials, making them a sustainable alternative to traditional materials like granite and quartz.

In addition to being eco-friendly in their production, ultracompact surfaces are also highly durable and long-lasting. They are resistant to scratching, staining, and fading, which means they won’t need to be replaced as frequently as other surfaces. This not only saves money in the long run, but it also reduces the environmental impact of constantly producing and disposing of new materials.

At Tops Solid Surface, we are committed to being environmentally conscious in all aspects of our business. In 2021, we upgraded our water fabrication system to a new, more environmentally friendly water pump and filtration system within our fabrication facility, which has helped us cut our monthly water usage in half. This not only saves resources, but it also helps reduce our carbon footprint and costs.

We are proud to offer a wide range of ultracompact surface products, including those from Florim, Neolith, Lapitec, and Dekton. These surfaces are a beautiful and sustainable choice for kitchen and bathroom countertops, backsplashes, and more. If you’re looking to create an environmentally friendly space in your home, consider choosing ultracompact surfaces from Tops Solid Surface. Our team of experts can assist you in selecting the perfect material for your project and ensuring a smooth and successful installation.
