I’m sure you’ll have been tuning into ITV This Morning to check out the lovely curvaceous Crème Lineaire kitchen.
So you may have noticed the beautiful worktops that compliment the range perfectly. Well, not only are they stylish but they are environmentally friendly!
The durable ECO worktops that This Morning selected are partly made from recycled consumer waste such as mirror, porcelain sinks, baths and tiles, and from industrial waste such as ash from power plants and stone scrap from quarries and workshops.
These products are bound together using an eco-friendly resin made from corn oil to create beautiful composite kitchen worktops. They come in 10 different colours and styles.
So, if you’re thinking about some new surfaces then definitely check out the latest eco-friendly trend!
This week saw Gary Neville announce plans to build an £8 million zero carbon eco home in Harwood, Bolton.
At a whopping 8,000 sq ft, the modern home has six separate areas called ‘eat’, ‘relax’, ‘entertain’, ‘work’, ‘sleep’ and ‘play’.
The home will use energy produced from a wind turbine and also a ground source heat pump.
At the heart of the development will be a large central kitchen where Gary should think about using a Magnet eco worktop. These stylish and durable worktops are partly made from recycled consumer waste such as mirror, porcelain sinks, baths and tiles as well as industrial waste such as ash from power plants and stone scrap from quarries and worktops.
Using an eco-friendly resin, these waste products are bound together to create a range of beautiful composite worktops that are available in 10 different colours and styles including black forest and iron ore which would look great in any modern kitchen.
Society as a whole is becoming increasingly conscious about the environment and we are now seeing eco-products crossing in to all areas of life.
ECO worktops made from both recycled and eco-friendly natural materials are being launched in the UK exclusively by Magnet, in partnership with world-leading surfaces manufacturer, Cosentino.
The stylish and durable worktops are partly made from recycled consumer waste such as mirror, porcelain sinks, baths and
tiles, and from industrial waste such as ash from power plants and stone scrap from quarries and workshops.
These products are bound together using an eco-friendly resin made from corn oil to create beautiful composite worktops in 10 different colours and styles. The range of natural and neutral colours varies from black forest, iron ore through to bright white iridescent finishes and deeper speckled tops with green and light blue flecks.
Two hot trends for 2010 are natural looks and monochrome style. These worktops could be used to create either of these looks and their durability means they will look great in years to come.
All the raw materials used have high thermal, mechanical and chemical resistance, making them perfect for use in the kitchen. The worktops also have a very low porosity allowing a high stain resistance.
The products chosen for recycling are not easily or cannot be recycled in any other way and the innovative processes used to create ECO worktops mean that waste will not be left in landfill sites for years to come.
Bamboo worktops have been available at Magnet for a couple of years and this is such a prolific plant that it can also count as environmentally friendly, but this is the first time worktops such as these have been launched.
Has anyone heard of any other eco worktops?
