Laminate is often tapped as a go-to surfacing material, but rarely is it considered the most sustainable choice. EcoStone Decorative Surfaces from Panolam Surface Systems offers a more eco-friendly option for architects and designers specifying countertops and partitions in residential and commercial applications. With a core made completely from recycled paper combined with resin and compressed for durability, the Greenguard-certified compact laminate resists heat and stains. Available in ½”, ¾”, and 1” thicknesses and in 12 colors (tourmaline, shown) and five finishes.
