What makes this product green?

  • Pre-consumer recycled content

Description

EcoX countertops are made of 74% pre- or post-consumer recycled glass in a portland cement binderGlue used in manufactured wood products, such as medium-density fiberboard (MDF), particleboard, and engineered lumber. Some binders are made with formaldehyde. See urea-formaldehyde binder and methyl diisocyanate (MDI) binder. . The company's countertops made with clear glass use pre-consumer content from industrial scrap or rejected container material, whereas colored glass is post-consumer from local sources. EcoX's low-water formula uses various pozzolans and low-alkali cement, avoiding the need for epoxy to maintain strength. Standard slabs are 30" x 96" and 1-1/2" thick; custom sizes are available. EcoX is manufactured in 25 colors in Raleigh, North Carolina.
