As a harvested resource, cork makes an excellent eco-friendly flooring option. Cork floors are made from the leftover material from the manufacturing of wine stoppers, and finished with a durable and resilient coating. Since cork flooring is a product that is considered both renewable and recyclable, it gets high marks from green flooring experts. Homeowners and designers also praise cork flooring for its versatility, durability, and hypoallergenic features.
Bamboo flooring are one of the most popular green flooring options. It gets its eco-friendly stamp of approval because it is made from a rapidly renewing resource that matures quickly and regenerates without replanting. Topped with a polyurethane coating, the green attributes of bamboo flooring are enhanced by its durability and design flexibility.
