CaraGreen Launches elementAl, a New Line of Surfacing Products that Offer a Unique and Sustainable Alternative to Conventional Surfaces

elementAl uses recycled plastic and metal to create stunning surfaces, providing a simple solution to a complex problem.

RALEIGH, NC, March 5, 2019 – CaraGreen, the trusted source for healthier building materials, today announced it will offer a new line of surfacing material that not only addresses the escalating recycling issue, but also provides a durable, well-performing and striking alternative for surfacing applications, specifically countertops, furniture, shelving, and tabletops. elementAl surfaces tell the story of the need for a more sustainable economy in commercial and residential structures, providing architects, designers, and builders with a simple solution to a complex problem.


Recycling has become an issue since China stopped accepting recyclable materials from other countries including the U.S. Now, more than ever, there is a need to create new materials that re-purpose recycled materials. elementAl takes plastic and metal from the post-consumer waste stream and melds them together into a stunning, easily machined surface that is offered in finishes that are translucent, making it suitable for backlighting. elementAl offers a sustainable alternative to granite, quartz, and other quarried stone, comes in an array of colors and is durable like granite, yet not as porous as marble.


“We are pleased to offer customers a new design element as countertops and other surfaces become centerpieces of residential, hospitality and corporate environments. By co-developing and representing elementAl surfacing products, we provide alternatives to the current and limited designs by offering new colorful and technically advanced options,” said Jessica McNaughton, President of CaraGreen. “By staying at the forefront of design trends in healthy building materials, we continue to supply products that contribute to healthier spaces as well as provide a desirable aesthetic.”
