We wanted to share the countertop material we chose called EcoTop. We are very happy with how it looks installed. Here is some additional information from the manufacuter:
"EcoTop® is an FSC certified product, comprised of a 50/50 fiber blend of 100% post consumer recycled fiber and rapidly renewable bamboo fiber, then bound with a clear 100% water-based system. EcoTop® is a repairable/renewable surface with water absorption of less than 1%, making it impossible to permanently stain. This is a highly scratch resistant product that will withstand up to 360 degrees F."
