Consumers are increasingly turning to eco-friendly products, and home remodeling is no exception. Homeowners want countertops that are not only functional and aesthetically pleasing, but are earth-friendly too. Fortunately, laminate countertops fall into this range, making eco-friendly choices affordable as well as beautiful – but what makes them such a green choice? Find out from the specialists in countertop edge profiles at Kuehn Bevel.
- Puts your health first: All laminate countertops are made with a backing to provide strength and durability, but what makes them eco-friendly is that this backing has no added formaldehyde or urea, or that this backing is sealed with a zero-VOC, water-based sealant.
- Recycled: Countertops made of recycled materials are very earth-friendly, so look out for laminates made of recycled plastic. Some of the top brands known for their use of recycled plastic include Wisonart, Formica and Poinite.
- Locally made: Importing countertops or bringing them in from the other side of the country increases their carbon footprint, so look for countertop and edging manufacturers inside the U.S. that can supply you locally through an established network.
- Eco-friendly manufacturers: Make sure that the manufacturer of your countertop is committed to good environmental practices throughout their organization, like carbon emission reduction, using recycled materials in their products and holding FSC, LEED and Greenguard certifications.
