If you are looking for super eco friendly flooring, you should consider bamboo. It can be one of the most sustainable choices available today -- mainly because it reproduces itself so quickly. When compared to wood, it is as hard or harder than most woods, it is less sensitive to moisture than wood and it comes in many of the same color variations as wood. It is renewable, recyclable and biodegradable.
When shopping bamboo, be aware that not all bamboo is manufactured in the same way. Bamboo is one of the more affordable flooring options, however some of the most affordable bamboo is processed with urea-formaldehyde and other VOC's which can lead to harmful off-gassing. Our bamboo options are free of toxic additives.
