Are you tired of the same countertop choices? Are you looking for something new? Innovative? Green? If so, keep reading to learn more about ECO countertops by Cosentino.
This durable countertop surface is made from 75% recycled content (either pre- or post- consumer depending on color), which is bound by an environmentally friendly resin which comes in part from corn oil. ECO by Cosentino is a sustainable substitute for natural and/or engineered stone.
* It won’t scratch, stain or scorch (but you should always use a cutting board to protect your knives)
* Doesn’t require sealing because it’s low in porosity
* Available in 10 designer colors and two textures (Leather™ and polished)
* Available in 63”x 128” slab and standard size tiles
* Backed by a 5 year limited warranty
* LEED credits: MR Credit 4.1 and 4.2 : Recycled Content
There are other eco-friendly surfacing materials in the market today, but no other like ECO by Cosentino. ECO by Cosentino reutilizes materials that have reached the end of their life cycle, thus saving on the creation and consumption of natural resources. Most of the raw materials used in the creation of ECO are: Porcelain Mirror, Glass Corn Based Resin
and Crystallized Ash Stone Scraps.
One of the best features:
To maintain ECO surfaces’ beauty and shine, simply wipe the surface with soap and water on a regular basis.
Thanks, CaraGreen for the introduction of ECO by Cosentino!
It is great to see these companies doing something to go green

I saw that ECO by Cosentino is going beyond the product and also developing a social network named Recyecology and has a presence in Twitter… They have good post talking about sustainability, ecology and recycling!
Its social network is at http://www.recyecology.net
And in Twitter @recyecology
It’s interesting to see a company that is concerned (and doing things) about our planet!
Thank you very much for the blogpost, the comments, join our network and follow us!

i know the recyecology network, it gaves really good advices, and has interesting topics to talk about. all of them about ecology.
I bought the Iron Ore color for a 9X5 Island and its the best thing since sliced bread!
I read a review on another site that mentioned they had scratching and pitting after only a few days with the Terra Eco product. We are looking at purchasing this product in the Crystal Ash. Have you had any problems since your Oct21 post? Thanks.
Found this in Eco product in Crystal Ash–gorgeous! Both my spouse and I quit our search right then and there. We both agreed this was the most beautiful product out there. And the fact that it’s recycled only adds to its awesomeness.
We just had the Eco product in ‘Starlight’ installed this past week. We’re so happy! We love it…very reflective of light, classy, contemporary, and sophisticated.
Thanks for sharing, Brianne!
Have been considering the Eco countertop in Luna, but am worried based on other poor online reviews of the product generally. Those with the Eco countertops for more than a year still happy with them? Any issues? It’s a spendy product, but I am desperate to be green with my kitchen here and I love how it looks from the sample. Thanks!

I represent ECO by Cosentino and we appreciate your inquiry! While I’m not familiar with the negative reviews, I can assure you ECO is an award-winning product, that’s as durable as quartz surfacing and it’s backed by a 10-year warranty. I would be happy to put you in touch with some of the designers we have worked with that adore the product. Shannon can send you my contact information!
THOUGHT IT IS A FIVE YEAR WARRENTY????
OK…you have had it for a month now. Do you still like it? Any disadvantages you seeing in this type of countertop yet? Thanks for sharing.

ECO is backed by a 10-year warranty. Thanks!
Nicole, I hope you are still monitoring this site – I need some information from you. I found the Eco product absolutely gorgeous. However, the kitchen designer who worked at a big box store said their display countertop was not smooth to the touch (actually had a rough & sharp feel), and that the display had been pulled by the rep. Can you comment on possible sharp, rough, or pitted surface quality? If an installed counter developed such an issue, what would the manufacturer/supplier do? Can it be repolished on site? And exactly what form does the warranty take? Thanks so much for your time and expertise – I would really like to use this product!
Hi Margaret – I sent your message to Nicole. Stay tuned!

How is it holding up after a year?? I would love to know as I am considering starlight for my kitchen!!
