Natural stone product company Cosentino is offering a line of environmentally friendly stone surfaces that can be used as countertops or other purposes.

The line, called ECO by Cosentino, uses 75 percent recycled materials. The company predicts the line's production will reuse 60 million glass bottles and 540,000 square feet of ceramics every year. The recycled content is mixed with natural materials such as quartz and stone scrap to produce a surface that is nonporous and stain, scratch and scorch resistant, according to the company.

While countertops using recycled materials aren't a new concept, the ease of purchasing and installing this eco-friendly material is -- ECO is available at Lowe's stores nationwide.

ECO is available as tiles in three sizes (12 inches square, 18 inches square and 24 inches square) and slabs (63 inches by 128 inches); three thicknesses (1.2 centimeters, 2 centimeters and 3 centimeters); and 10 colors. Prices range from $68 to $118. Visit www.ecobycosen tino.com for more information.
