    There are a number of them out there.  Alkemi is made from aluminum shavings; Eleek metal tiles are made from recycled aluminum; Fireclay Debris Series tiles are made from recycled materials; Oceanside Glasstiles are made from recycled glass, as are EnviroGLAS tiles.

    Some other recycled countetops could include salvaged wood or even cardboard.  A company acually makes countertops from 100 percent recycled cardboard.  Left over plant materials or recycled rubber could also be used.  Many companies are experimenting with new recycled materials.

    Many countertops are made from recycled glass, reclaimed wood, even paper. The Smart Home on display at Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry has a countertop made of recycled glass oven doors from around the Chicago area, made by the company Gilasi (http://www.gilasi.com). Other eco-friendly companies include Shetkastone (made from consumer waste and recyclable), EcoTop (recycled wood and bamboo fibers, a renewable resource), and BioGlass (made completely from recycled glass). You can find many more at the link below, happy hunting! 🙂
