ECO by Cosentino
ECO by Cosentino is a new green surfacing material composed of 75% post-industrial and post-consumer recycled raw material, including: mirrors salvaged from houses, buildings and factories; glass from windows and bottles; granulated glass from consumer recycling practices; porcelain from china, tiles, sinks, toilets and decorative elements; industrial furnace residuals from factories in the form of crystallized ashes; stone scrap from mountains, quarries, manufacturing, and fabrication; and is bonded together with a proprietary eco-friendly corn-oil based resin. The result of a six million dollar research and development investment, this innovative new product caters to the environmentally conscious and design-oriented architect, designer, and consumer by providing high performance, design and sustainability. By utilizing these recycled materials, Cosentino is “upcycling  products that have reached the end of their lifecycle ‚¬â€œ meaning that they cannot be incorporated in to any other industrial product and would otherwise build-up in landfill sites. The production of ECO by Cosentino is expected to re-use the equivalent of 60,000,000 glass bottles every year. Reutilizing this huge amount of material prevents it from building up at landfills year after year, and reduces the need to mine for new resources. ECO by Cosentino's unique make-up of recycled materials combined with natural elements is achieved through state-of-the-art technology and delivers a hard durable surface that has high stain, scratch and scorch performance. Unlike more traditional materials, it is non-porous and does not require sealers. ECO is available at all Lowe's stores nationwide as well as specialty kitchen and bath distributors and showrooms across the country. To locate regional distributors, fabricators and retailers, call 1-866-579-4ECO (4326) or visit www.ecobycosentino.com.

Pricing

ECO by Cosentino ranges from $68 - $98 per square foot, depending on thickness and color.

Notes

ECO by Cosentino is easy to maintain and care for. ECO surfaces are low in porosity and do not need sealing making cleaning easy. To maintain the beauty and shine, simply wipe the surface with soap and water on a regular basis. Acceptable cleaners include Windex®, 409®, Lysol® or other similar cleaners. Always use a trivet or a cutting board to place hot items on ECO surfaces. Avoid cutting on ECO by Cosentino surfaces. To prolong the life of your knives, always use a cutting board.
