Recent headlines suggesting some granite countertops may emit hazardous levels of radiation are disturbing and have led many people to wonder what a safer alternative to their old standby might be. For that reason you can’t top EcoTop, a line of environmentally responsible countertops that are not only healthy but also elegant.
EcoTop is composed of a Forest Stewardship Council-certified 50/50 blend of bamboo fiber – a rapidly renewable resource – and recycled wood fiber salvaged from demolition sites. These materials are bound together by a water-based resin formula that is both petroleum-free and VOC-free. Because of this, EcoTop products can earn you up to six points on your next LEED project.
So let’s review: granite with potentially hazardous levels of radiation or EcoTop’s chic, durable and environmentally friendly alternative? Don’t you wish all of your decisions were this easy to make?
