Recycled surfaces manufacturing company Curava started to manufacture its recycled countertop surfaces in response to the growing demand in the US for products containing recycled and repurposed materials. Curava countertops combine approximately 70% recycled glass, seashells, and clay pottery fragments with a cement binder to offer a beautiful, affordable, eco-friendly surfacing product. Thanks to the company“s knowledge of stone fabrication, it has created a new product that maximizes the amount of recycled material while adding protective surface elements. The material can be used as countertops, fireplace surrounds, outdoor kitchens, bathroom vanities, shower and tub surrounds, tabletops and furniture. The recycled materials are sourced from both post-consumer (beer and wine bottles, demolition, jars, window glass) and post-industrial sources (pottery factories). Slabs are available in 114x26x1-1/4 and customized for each application from local distributors. The standard Curava collection offers eight colour options (Golden Poppy, Etruscan Green, Calypso Blue, Frost White, Autumn Leaves, Inthira Black, Aqua Sand and Sepia Wheat), and 12 additional options in the Splendid Collection“ and 12 final options in the Limited Collection“ (available for large commercial projects only). Curava may contribute toward earning LEED Materials & Resources credits 4.1, 4.2, Indoor Environmental Quality credit 4.1 (contains no VOCs) and an Innovation in Design credit (recycled content greater than 30% post-consumer). Curava is certified by NSF International and a member of the US Green Building Council.
