Conscious Flooring: Treading Lightly on the Planet


Conscious Flooring is all about sustainable flooring, and they appear to have done their homework on the green aspects of their work. Featuring bamboo, cork, marmoleum and wood, they also offer sustainable decking, FSC Certified and bamboo plywoods, wheatboard, low-VOC adhesives, cork and recycled fiber underlayments, and appear to have carefully considered the environmental performance of each of their products. As we've noted before, not all bamboo is created equal, but Conscious Flooring's version is about as green as it gets; details on their bamboo floors can be found here [PDF] and here in an FAQ page. They also make extensive use of FSC-certified hardwoods, as well as locally-sourced and recycled wood; they currently feature Antique Longleaf Pine salvaged from an old whiskey warehouse in Kentucky. Much more info on their materials, environmental practices and products is available at their website. ::Conscious Flooring
