There are a lot of parts to that “green” equation. Natural resources. Energy. Climate. The materials we live with and consume every day. Plus, of course, the community of people we share our space with; it’s about how we act and how we all act in this regard.
You can have all the “green” promotion possible, but unless the green goods and services meet our unique and individual needs for style (color and fashion) plus durability (they have to stand up to the use WE need them to), it’s hard to be altruistic.
Fortunately for those who embrace floor décor as, well, décor and not some commodity (thing of how you were sold and how you purchased flooring in the pat – largely the price!), green is something that not only looks good in your home or office or commercial space, it also is good to live with.
Innovation… Aesthetics... Functionality
These are the hallmarks of modern green flooring.
Here are a couple of types of green flooring available today:
· Soft and colorful luxury broadloom carpet, made of bio-based, naturally sourced, recycles or recyclable fibers with “organic” looks that reflect our rediscovered respect for Mother Earth.
· Resilient flooring made form naturally grown, renewable materials, some even with other natural materials embedded.
Look for the new wave of rubber flooring! In fact, take a trip to your local flooring retailer’s showroom. Ask about flooring products that are sustainable and environmentally responsible. You will be surprised on how many options and choices are available in wood, carpet, resilient, tile and laminate. If you care about the environment, you’ll be glad you took the step to see what’s available.
