Earthstone's Affordable, Recycled Granite Pavers

According to John Tesh, the sales and marketing director at Earthstone, many companies throw away up to 25% of a slab of granite used in making countertops. Earthstone uses these scraps to make its products. “We came up with a patented process that turns that waste into pavers and interior flooring.” Tesh told

EBN. “For lack of a better description, it’s a 50-ton granite ‘cookie cutter,’” he said. All of the material the company collects is turned into product and kept out of landfills. Recently, the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources certified the company as a “granite recycling center.”
