Much more goes into having green floors than your choice of surface layer. There's the subfloor to consider, the underlay, trims and adhesives. Once the floor is down, there is still the question of the greenness of finishes and cleaners. All of these things can have consequences for the environment whether it relates to what they're made of, how they were manufactured, if they "off–gas" and more. Don't worry, we can point you in the right direction.

Organizations, Certifications, Education - Icon

Organizations, Certifications & Education

In this section you'll find information on eco–friendly organizations, certifications and education. The U.S. Green Building Council issues LEED certification for example which is becoming a well known and sought after certification. As the world is becoming more environmentally conscious, more organizations are offering education classes and certifications to those wishing to contribute to the green cause. For instance, it is possible to become a LEED Accredited Professional.
