Every time I read the "butcher block harbours bacteria" misinformation I want to cry a little. Wood does not harbour bacteria. Plastic harbours bacteria. Wood contain tannin, a natural defense against bacteria. Wood, properly cared for, is far safer in a food environment than many of the alternatives.

Love this article!! PaperStone is one of our favorite materials we sell and deserves recognition for sure! IceStone is also a great option (considered concrete), and has recycled glass in it!!
