What is Eco Flooring?
Eco Flooring or Eco-friendly Flooring are non-toxic and environmentally friendly flooring materials made from sustainably harvested, recycled or reclaimed resources. In the production process, Eco Flooring will not use chemical treatments that may damage the environment.
Cork as Eco Flooring Material
Cork is one of the most sustainable materials available today. Because no trees are harmed in the harvesting of cork. Only the bark of the Oak Tree is harvested to retrieve cork, while the trees continue to flourish and the bark is replenished every nine years. Each time the cork is harvested, the tree sequesters more CO2 to aid in the bark regeneration process.
The manufacturing process generates almost no waste and has a very small carbon footprint. Cork floor has long life span and well-maintained cork floor can last up to 40 years.
