Floor & Wall

Picking out eco friendly flooring can be really fun because there are so many gorgeous, unique options: reclaimed wood, cork, bamboo, recycled rubber, wool carpet, etc. But, equally as important is considering what’s underneath. There’s a subfloor, which is typically pressed wood that emits toxic VOCs. Then there’s an underlayment — sound dampener under hard flooring and padding under carpet – that can contain toxic flame retardants. And you also have to consider adhesives and finishes.

Eco friendly walls are a little simpler. Standard sheetrock doesn’t pose any health issues, but there are options that are more eco-friendly – like those made from recycled materials or plant fibers. Next, you have to consider joint compound and in the case of this product, you do need to consider toxic chemicals and health impacts. Finally – what goes on top? Choose from non-toxic paints and finishes, natural plasters, plant fiber wall-coverings, and more.
