Environmentally Friendly Home Improvements

Home improvements can be elegant, stylish, and still be environmentally friendly. Eco-friendly options are available for flooring, cabinets, countertops, furniture, and outside uses that may come as a surprise.

Paper-based kitchen counters are available that are attractive alternatives to plastic or stone. Manufactured from sustainable resources, they’re resistant to scratches, heat and staining and offered in multiple colors.

Bamboo is a sustainable and renewable resource that’s especially beneficial when used in bathrooms since it’s resistant to moisture.

Technology has allowed manufacturers to create countertops from recycled glass. Typically used in bathrooms, the material is resistant to heat and scratches, is low-maintenance, and is similar to granite when it comes to strength.

Explore linoleum made of natural materials. It’s often used in hospitals and similar environments due to its ability to inhibit the growth of bacteria and micro-organisms.

Cork floors are a renewable resource that’s durable, features a cushioned surface, is hypoallergenic, and contains antibacterial properties. It insulates against noise helps save on heating and cooling bills.

Sorghum is a plant grown for livestock feed and it’s a type of sweetener. Normally the stalks are burned or discarded in landfills, but manufacturers are now using the stalks to create wood known as Kirei board for furnishings.

For those that have ever wondered what happens to plastic beverage bottles, some are repurposed into plastic fiber and woven into carpeting. It’s stylish, fashionable, and stain resistant. Available in multiple colors, it doesn’t trap dust, dirt and allergens like traditional carpeting.

Consider composite decking rather than wood for decks. It’s created from a mixture of recycled plastic and wood that’s strong, durable, and won’t rot, crack, warp or splinter. It doesn’t need painting, staining or water-repelling treatments.

Instead of wood mulching, look for rubber mulch created from 100 percent recycled rubber. It doesn’t attract insect pets, it’s porous so water flows through it easily, prevents weed growth, and offers a safe play surface under children’s swings and slides.

For those that want to save time and money on their lawn, consider synthetic grass. It never needs mowing, fertilizer or irrigation and will stay vibrant and green for many years.
