Metal Scrap Into Countertops!

I discovered a new eco-friendly solid counter top today - it is made from fine flake aluminum milling scrap! Usually the scrap metal is recycled by burning, which creates pollution. So instead, the scraps are put into a resin and made into beautiful and interesting counter tops. The product is called ALKEMI and the manufacturing process leaves no hazardous footprint.

The countertops come in several colors and finishes. When you look at them close you see all the interesting twists of metal.

I love this industry! The move towards GREEN has really gotten people to think outside of the box and has increased creativity and product choices!
