Richlite's latest offering is a paper-based countertop made from 50 percent recycled corrugated cardboard and 50 percent softwood pulp. The Tacoma, Wash.-based manufacturer says the material is stain-, scratch-, and heat-resistant and dense enough to accommodate long cantilevers without additional support.
