Comment: I don't have any counter space in my kitchen, so I wanted to get a large enough board to lay over the sink and give me room to prepare my food. I had originally intended to get a bamboo board for their durability and their sustainable source, but I came across the Epicurean cutting surface and my mind was changed. These cutting boards are made in the USA from compressed sheets of recycled paper that are soaked in an ethanol based resin. These cutting surfaces are friendlier on knife blades, heat resistant and maintenance free. What I find most remarkable about this product is the story of how it was founded. A company called TrueRide, who builds municipal skate parks, was trying to find a way to reduce and reuse the excess material being wasted from building their skate parks. It turns out that the the same thing thats makes a good half pipe, makes a great cutting board.
