Bamboo Flooring: Green Home

If you’re thinking of replacing the flooring in your home, you might have been hearing about choosing bamboo as a “greener option.”

Why bamboo? Bamboo is a sustainable grass which replenishes itself every four years. Bamboo is actually the fastest growing woody plant on earth! Many people plant it in their backyard to create a privacy screen, for this reason. But its hardness and durability make it a stellar choice for flooring!

Other good choices for environmentally-friendly flooring include cork, reclaimed wood and recycled ceramic tiles. Peruse some options at Low Impact Living.

But if you’re just looking for something basic, easy and inexpensive, this solid bamboo flooring from Lowes might be your next floor.
