Eco Friendly Wood Flooring

Up until the last decade, harvesting wood for hardwood flooring has been looked down upon by environmental advocates. Deforestation, or the conversion of forest into non-forest land, has led to a significant increase in global warming. With help from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) a non-profit organization, there is now such a thing as "eco friendly wood flooring."

The FSC helps promote environmentally friendly wood by encouraging manufacturers to carry out more responsible practices. Hardwood flooring that's made with wood from an FSC-certified forest usually bears the FSC mark.

Eco friendly wood flooring doesn't just end there. Hardwood floors made with reclaimed lumber is also available through a number of manufacturers. The reclaimed materials are taken from rundown barns, old buildings and even unused wine barrels. The result is a green hardwood floor that is just as beautiful and strong as hardwood floors made with new materials. One of the only things stopping consumers from purchasing reclaimed hardwood floors is the price. Often times recycled hardwood floors cost more than new hardwood, as more energy and money goes into disassembling, transporting and reshaping the reclaimed materials.

Another way to make a positive contribution to the environment with your floor purchase is to choose a domestic hardwood. Domestic woods are grown in North America, which means less energy exerted on account of transportation (compared to exotic hardwoods which can be shipped great distances to their destination).
