It’s time to think green with most everything you do, especially considering the fact that Earth Day is only two days away (April 22, 2010). So, take that home remodeling project to the next level by incorporating green features, like ENERGY Star appliances, water conserving facets and eco-friendly countertops. It may be somewhat shocking to discover that non-energy consuming products can be green, but it’s true. In fact, most everything you include in your home renovation, whether a functioning appliance or not, has a green alternative for you to use. When it comes to kitchen countertops, some of the most eco-friendly are the reclaimed wood countertops from the Heritage Wood collection.
As Georgia’s only member of the elite Artisan Group, Construction Resources is the exclusive supplier of the Heritage Wood collection in Atlanta. Not only are these wood countertops beautiful and offered in a wide range of colors and finishes, the reclaimed wood countertops of the collection comply with LEED standards and are the most eco-friendly of countertops.
Here are just a few of their advantages:
- Natural with many eco-friendly options
- Easy to clean
- Provides a smooth, even surface
- Warm appearance and renewable surface
- Very sanitary with inherent anti-bacterial properties
- Won’t dull knife blades; great for cooking
- Provides a convenient, built-in chopping/food prep area
- After heavy usage, most knife marks and deeper scratches can be removed by sanding and re-oiling
- Works well with undermount sinks
Don’t think that investing in ENERGY Star appliances and water-conserving faucets are the only thing you can do in your kitchen to make it green. Those products are just the tip of the iceberg. Construction Resources carries a wide variety of green products, from the eco-friendly countertops (the reclaimed wood countertops of the Heritage Wood Collection is just one example of many green countertops available) to closet organization systems.
