ECO by Cosentino: a recycled materials countertop.

ECO by Cosentino is a durable and stain resistant countertop material that has received Greenguard and Cradle to Cradle certifications.   We love it because it is made of 75% post-consumer/post industrial materials that are being diverted from landfills… glass bottles, windshields, windows, mirrors, porcelain dishware, sinks, toilets, and industrial scraps.

Eco’s resin binder is made of 22% corn-oil, and the slabs are polished with a diamond blade to add a natural shine that does not require any sealant. Additionally, Cosentino reuses approximately 65 million glass bottles per year.   During the manufacturing process, 94% of the water used is recycled, and all minerals come from quarries that follow strict stewardship guidelines.

Our color pick:  White Diamond.  It’s fresh, clean, bright…perfect for a bathroom pick me up.  Pair it with Lush Vapor Frosted tiles from Modwalls and Hakwood European Oak flooring for a little coastal living.

What do you need to know about installation/maintenance?   We installed the White Diamond in a master bathroom 2 years ago and it has held up wonderfully.  Slabs are 63″x 128″, and soap-water (or gentle pH-balanced cleaners) is the best way to get it clean.  Installation must be done by a certified professional.  10-year limited warranty.
