Paper Composite Kitchen Countertop Basics

Paper countertops? If you're thinking of thin sheets of newspaper or butcher paper, think again: try paper composite countertops, made of paper impregnated with resins. These are a very "green," eco-friendly alternative to that other composite countertops--laminate.

Pros

  • Very green; used recycled paper materials.
  • Even the resins are green (not petroleum-based).

Cons

  • Not readily available at your local kitchen design center. Requires special order.

Brand Names

EcoTop, PaperStone, Richlite, ShetkaSTONE.
