Marmoleum floorcoverings, available in sheets or tiles, are made from natural flax, rosins, wood flour, and are backed with jute. They are warm and comfortable, 100% biodegradeable. Healthy to produce and install, they'll remain so during their useful life, and even in disposal. And since they can be installed with solvent free adhesives, there are also no harmful VOC’s being emitted.
Additionally, marmoleum is dust-free, making it an excellent choice for people with allergies. It's also anti-static, and very easy to clean. Its bactericidal properties prevent micro-organisms--even the baddest of 'em--from multiplying themselves, because the linseed oil used in marmoleum continually oxidizes. On top of all this, thay are wicked fun to decorate the floor with. ::Marmoleum [by MO]
