Gast Home is committed to innovative green building materials, and and this product is a great new countertop solution. When materials are made with sustainability in mind, it means we live in a healthier world. These recycled copper countertops are made from post-consumer recycled copper, and a proprietary resin using the lowest impact raw materials possible. They contain no formaldehyde and emits no VOCs.
The LEED Green Building Rating System, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council under contract with the U.S. Department of Energy, is a voluntary standard for developing environmentally responsible, low emission, high-performance, sustainable buildings. LEED certification is for the entire construction project. Materials and products used in buildings are not individually certified. Through a rigorous process of third-party verification by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) the project earns points towards achieving a particular level of certification (Certified, Silver, Gold or Platinum).
Because these countertops use >90% recycled content, they may qualify for numerous LEED points in the selected categories of Materials and Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality, and potentially Innovation in Design.
- MR 4.1/4.2: Recycled Content (1-2 points)
- MR 5.1/5.2: Regional Materials (2 points)
- MR 4.0

Frequently Asked Questions
Our Recycled Copper Countertop material is ideal for countertops in any room, food prep surfaces, tabletops and other furniture, window sills, cabinets, indoor wall cladding, and many other uses.
Our recycled copper surfaces are dense, durable, and easy to care for.
Our recycled copper countertops are made from >90% post-consumer recycled copper and non-petroleum based resins. It is a composite material where sheets of recycled copper are mixed with the resins and recycled stone, and then compressed under heat and pressure. This produces a dense, homogeneous and essentially non-porous material that does not delaminate. One fabricated, panels can be cut and routed with traditional high-quality carbide-tipped woodworking tools. This product machines and finishes like dense stone.
