Recycled glass countertops are and earth-friendly alternative to traditional counter top materials such as marble or granite. As opposed to being made from materials that are mined or quarried, they are made with glass waste material. The surfaces are very durable and easy to clean, and because of their non-porous surface, are resistant to stains and bacteria. A number of companies are making recycled glass surfaces, but because the technology is somewhat new, the cost is still higher than some of the other countertop surfaces.
