Green Flooring Types

Looking for green flooring for your home and don't know where to begin? This section can help you discover the eco–friendly qualities of the most common floor types on the market.

In many cases it can be nearly impossible to find eco flooring that meets every measure of greenness. For example, while a number of eco floors (like some bamboo floor types) are made with 100 percent natural materials, many times they must be shipped thousands of miles to their destination. For a truly eco–friendly floor, the amount of carbon dioxide emitted from ships, planes and trucks must be considered, as carbon plays a huge role in global warming.

Use the information in this section to help you as you search for the most suitable green floors for your home. In addition to clueing you in to these floors' green features, we can also show you how to turn a not–so–green floor into something more environmentally viable. Keep in mind that while our "Green–Friendly Flooring" section can provide insight for the more popular floor types, it's still important to ask questions when shopping.
