Durat—the dream bathtub source for many eco-minded consumers— is a surface material made of post-industrial plastic waste that is 100% recyclable. Available in more 70 speckled colors, Durat can be used for a variety of surfaces in both bathrooms and kitchens, including sinks, bath tubs, shower trays, tables and benches.
More about Durat:
The recycled post industrial waste is granulated into small speckles, giving Durat its distinctive texture. Durat is cast into sheets and different sizes of sinks and bath tubs...Durat collects post industrial plastic waste from Sweden and Finland that would normally end up in wastelands...the fact that Durat is 100% recyclable is another concrete ecological point - this means we do not need to waste Durat pieces generated in production - we can use them and we can offer our clients the possibility to reclaim the material.
We couldn't get a concrete price quote, but we've heard that bathtubs cost in the range of $10,000. Sigh. Thus the reason it's a "dream" source for many people.
