Granite and Corian used to be the go-to’s for durable surfaces and countertops in home and commercial building. All of that changed when Caesarstone came on the market in 1987. Caesarstone is an awesome sustainable material that is nonporous, stain, scratch, and heat, resistant and backed by a residential lifetime warranty. Caesarstone is made from ground quartz aggregates, pigments, and polymers to create a product superior to marble, granite, and other manufactured surfaces. Quartz is the second most abundant mineral in the earths crust and quartz aggregates are often bi-products of frequently mined rocks. This means that Caesarstone is not using large amounts of non-renewable resources like granite in their product. This is an important distinction from granite when we turn our sustainability lens towards resource management. Caesarstone also makes sure to use sustainable practices in production, from recycling 97% of the water used in manufacturing, to collecting dust; using processes throughout production, processing and shipping that seek to protect the health of the planet, workers, and their customers. Let us know if we can help you distinguish between Caesarstone and other solid surface counter tops.
