Paper-stone as a countertop might seem like a weird idea at first, but don’t judge it from its name! It is made when stacks of paper are heated and compressed along with resin and natural pigments, turning the paper into a durable stone-like material that is durable and ideal for use in kitchens. And most importantly, amazing to look at!

2. Recycled-glass
