Lay eco-friendly wood floors.
Look to eco-friendly decoration materials when choosing flooring. When opting for wood floors, choose living-green flooring, such as bamboo, cork or reclaimed wood floors. Bamboo flooring is formed from the stalks of sustainable bamboo plants; the surface is easily maintained, moderately priced and highly durable. Sound-absorbent, moisture-resistant and cushy, cork flooring is crafted from a renewable resource; only the outer bark of cork trees is used in its production, which means trees are left standing for future harvests.
