Bellmont - https://bellmontcabinets.com/
The Bamboo used by Bellmont Cabinetry is Moso Bamboo. Bamboo is sustainably grown and harvested in managed agricultural areas of China. It grows to maturity in 5-7 years and when harvested, leaves behind a thriving plant with new shoots. Bamboo, which is actually a grass, is renewably harvested over and over from the same root stalk.
Teregren - https://teragren.com/countertops/
Teragren manufactures bamboo countertops and table tops to industry-leading standards for quality and environmental safety. These furniture-grade products are made with rapidly renewable Moso bamboo–perfect for table tops as well as kitchen counters and islands.

ECO by Cosentino® is an original product manufactured from 75% of recycled materials such as mirror, glass, porcelain, earthenware and vitrified ash. Even 94% of the water used in its manufacturing process is re-used.
ECO by Cosentino® is a new product that embraces sustainability, design and quality that has produced a new category of recycled surfaces. These are an ecological alternative to similar surfaces available for construction and decoration.
At Columbine Kitchen and bath, we offer several options for quartz tops. Come by and take a look. Like granite this is a solid surface option but is far more sustainable and requires a little less maintenance.
Richlite Surfaces - http://www.richlite.com/
Richlite is an incredibly durable, extremely versatile, and highly sustainable material made from resin-infused paper. Originally developed over 70 years ago for industrial tooling and pattern making, Richlite has expanded into a premium surface material used in the aerospace, marine, action sports, culinary, architecture, and design industries. This material is handmade from many layers of high quality custom craft paper, Richlite’s surface texture comes from the natural variation in the way fibers lay within the paper. Composed of approximately 65% FSC®-certified or recycled paper content and 35% phenolic resin, Richlite’s color comes from a combination of the paper and the amber tone of the resin.
Vetrazzo - http://www.vetrazzo.com/?lang=en
The Vetrazzo story began in 1996, when a brilliant scientist from Berkley, California, who was fascinated by the properties of glass, invented an entirely new product. He developed an innovative mix of recycled glass that could be used to create highly durable, beautifully colored slabs.
Icestone - https://icestoneusa.com/
IceStone began in 2003 with a simple concept; transform waste glass into something beautiful. Co-founders Miranda Magagnani and Peter Strugatz set out ot create a business that integrated sustainable, responsible practices from process to product, and to provide a high design solution that would address a real problem. With capital unvestnent from angel investors such as Ben Cohen from Ben & Jerry’s, to activist and author Dal LaMagna, the founder of Tweezerman, Greg Steltenpohl from Odwalla, and Gary Hirshberg from Stonyfield Farm, IceStone recycled glass surfaces were brought to market. IceStone has diverted over 13 million pounds of glass from landfills, and has given employees partial ownership of the company.
