You must be careful when purchasing carpet for your home. Many carpets are produced using petroleum, which is a non-renewable resource. Fibers in the material traps dust and allergens, and as a result can cause health problems for you and your family. Wool, seagrass, coir, jute, or sisal are better eco-friendly carpet materials for your home. Carpet costs an average of $3-$13 per square foot.
Hardwood flooring is a natural floor product, and is therefore easily renewed and recycled. Hardwood is biodegradable. It can be used as fuel or as part of new floor projects at the end of its lifecycle. The Forest Stewardship Council issues certifications to natural hardwood floor products. Hence, be sure to check for this certification before investing in a particular brand or product. Hardwood costs between $3-$12 per square foot.
Recycled hardwood is wood that comes from another flooring project. It contains recycled materials that are very expensive when purchased new. Consequently, many rare materials are obtained through recycling hardwood. These materials cut down on waste and help lower deforestation. Make sure that you do not buy a product treated after recycling.
