These panels are made from recycled plastic material and other waste streams of exceptional quality. We work with plastic bottles, yogurt containers, plant pots, and food packaging. All our materials are highly versatile, easy to work with, and waterproof. Perfect for kitchen countertops and backsplashes, and also bathrooms. These slabs beautifully merge dark gray and black tones with veins or flecks of silver in delightful harmony.

Our plastics are man-made with 100% recycled materials.  We ground the plastic into pellets, arrange them in a pattern, and heat and press them. This forms a hard surface that is durable and non-porous.  Plastic surfaces offers low maintenance appeal.

LEED

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 panels use 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

BULK Commercial Pricing

If you are working on a large project and in need of a large number of slabs, we do offer slightly better pricing for bulk orders.  Our pricing is already “contractor” pricing, so we do not offer better pricing to contractors.  However we do offer a discount for large order, and shipping costs will also be reduced.  Please contact us to discuss specific pricing.

We make these panels on demand within 1-2 weeks.  If you have any questions, please call us when ready to order and we will let you know the lead time including shipping.
