Are you interested in learning more about some of the industry’s top eco-friendly products? Ask us about our cork or wool products. Cork is a renewable resource because once the bark is stripped from the trees it can be repeated every nine years throughout the 150 plus life cycle of the tree. How is wool the most environmental friendly carpet of all? It is biodegradable and a rapidly renewable resource with the least environmental impact. In addition to these products, we carry many other manufacturers that pride themselves on using green technology and recycled products to do their part for today and tomorrow’s generation.
Don’t be fooled! Not all flooring is the same! While the products themselves are eco-friendly, the mills that produce them may not be. We do the research to bring you a truly green product through and through.
Linoleum helps create a healthier indoor environment. Naturally occurring anti-,microbial properties inhibit the growth of many micro-organisms, including allergen producing dust mites and the MRSA strains of bacteria.
Additionally, linoleum is dust-free, making it an excellent choice for people with allergies. It’s also anti-static, and very easy to clean. Its bactericidal properties prevent micro-organisms from multiplying themselves, because the linseed oil used in linoleum continually oxidizes.
Reclaimed old wood and used lumber have environmental merits whose use means less energy consumption, less natural resource depletion, less pollution, and an improved existence for both the planet and its occupants. Buildings account for one-sixth of the world’s freshwater withdrawals, one-quarter of its wood harvest, and two-fifths of its material and energy flows. Green building employing used lumber and old used wood helps divert these materials from landfills. Green building promotes conservation of materials and efficiency of products.
