Eco Friendly Flooring
McDonald Carpet One is proud to be a part
of the Green Select program. As part of the
program, we, alongside other Carpet One
stores, have taken a leadership role and
decided to “go green.” We take our role in the
environment very seriously, so be sure to stop
by our Boulder, CO store to learn more. We
carry a wide variety of eco-friendly flooring
options made from sustainable resources.
Carpets made from natural fibers are considered environmentally-friendly. These natural fibers include wool, cotton, and silk. These carpets are environmentally-friendly because they are not treated with any chemicals. Plus, many carpets offer natural carpet backing that does not require toxic adhesives. Carpets with natural fibers and backings will help maintain clean air quality. At the same time, these natural fibers will help ensure that the carpet is stylish and durable.
Bamboo flooring is eco-friendly mainly because of the bamboo plant. Bamboo is the fasting growing plant, so it grows quickly after harvesting. Also, harvesting bamboo does not completely kill the plant. As a result, the yield of bamboo is typically 25x the yield of hardwood. Likewise, cork flooring is eco-friendly. Cork is actually made from only the bark of the cork oak tree, so the tree is relatively unharmed.
We carry bamboo and cork flooring from the Voyager Collection.
